Run mmc => Console => Add/Remove Snap-in... => Click 'Add' => Choose 'Group Policy' => Click 'Add' => Click 'Brouse...' => Choose 'Default Domain Policy' => Click 'OK' => Click 'Finish' => Click 'Close' => Click 'OK' => Expend the following: User Configuration-Administrative Templates-desktop

Do whatever configuration you wish to do and thats it...

Good luck

The computer browser is a service in both 2k and XP and so turning the service off will disable it. This can be done in AD with the GPO using the users and computers MMC snap in (DSA.MSC), under computer configuration, windows settings.
