How to restrict TShellTreeview to only display file and folders

Hi all, does anybody know a way of using the  TShellTreeview in delphi to display only regular files and folders, excluding the recycle bin, control panel etc, but including network files (but not the actual computers etc).

If not is there a suitable commercial/freeware robust component available.

This is driving me nuts, I know there has to be asimple solution to this!

Eddie ShipmanAll-around developerCommented:
You have to inherit from TShellTreeView and modify the Populate procedure to ignore the ones
you don't want to show.
Eddie ShipmanAll-around developerCommented:
You can also write an AddFolder event handler to ignore the ones you don't want:

procedure TForm1.ShellTreeView1AddFolder(Sender: TObject;
  AFolder: TShellFolder; var CanAdd: Boolean);
  if (AFolder.DisplayName = 'Recycle Bin') or
     (AFolder.DisplayName = 'My Documents') then
    CanAdd := False;
