I just need to know the registry hack to
remove the Dial-Up Networking icon in "MY Computer" for WIN 95 and 98.  I need to remove this because my remote users(laptops) are messing with the settings and screwing it up.  If there is a better way of handling this without going to the registry, please let me know.

Thanks

Try looking in this registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace

Dial-Up Networking should be {992CFFA0-F557-101A-88EC-00DD010CCC48}.  If you click on the keys underneath NameSpace it will tell you what each one is though so you can double-check.  Hope that helps.

Forgot to say that if you remove that key, Dial-Up Networking will disappear from My Computer.

Thank you. I did that and it work fine.  Just one more thing though.  How can I recreate the Dial-Up Networking folder without putting the Registry Key back in?  I want to recreate it in some new folder and then hide it.  I know you can create it using the binary value or hex, but forgot how to do it.

Where are you trying to put it?  If you let me know, I can mess around and see what I can come up with.

I am trying to put it somewhere out of their prying eyes, like C:\windows\command.

Thank you
