Terminal Server 2003 - removing something from the user's view...

Hi All,
I don't have a name to call this thing, so I'm forced to describe it.  In my user's RDP sessions to a Windows 2003 TS, if they click on My Computer, the window that appears includes a pane on the left consisting of "System Tasks", "Other Places", and "Details".  Whatever this "pane" is called, I want to exclude it from being seen by the user.

1) what is this 'pane' called?
2) is there a way with group policy to diable or remove it from view?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'm assuming when you first open up "My Computer" on the left hand side you see these options.  It's called, "Slide Menu".

Open up "My Computer"
Folder Options

Under the General Tab, you'll see the first option called, "Tasks".  By default it's on, Show common tasks in folders".  Select the second option called, "Use Windows classic folders" which will get rid of the slide menu.  :)
