You can use this:  http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/173/

but you will need to set it on all computers, and it will remove ALL workgroups from showing up.

I don't believe it is possible to have only the workgroup the PC is a part of to show up like that.  It's either an all or nothing thing.  That's something that is accomplished using multiple domains.
