I have xp and I was wondering is there a setting in mmc,group policy that will prevent a computer from going and fetching all shared folders on the network. I really do not want the users to see or even know that folders exists, especially when it even pulls in the ones with the $ after the name, meaning hidden folder. Not too hidden if xp pulls it in

I think you should rebuild your network from the bottom up, turn off directories you do not want to share, allocate protection to directories you do want to share.
In the group policy editor Start >> Run >> gpedit.msc under user configuration, administrative templates, shared folders you can prohibit publishing of shared folders.  I had a quick glimpse through gpedit and that was the closest I could come to finding a solution.
Good luck
