VB6 code - using SHBrowseForFolder API Function - how to prevent access to network folders?

Hi Experts,

I am using VB^ code (see article here:  http://www.codeguru.com/vb/controls/vb_shell/article.php/c3051/ ) that uses the SHBrowseForFolder API Function.

How can I modify that code so that will either:

a. hide network folders?, OR
b. prevent access to network folders?

I already suspect a simple solution is to check for folders that start with "\\", but I am hoping for a more sophisicated solution.

Regards,
Leigh
