Hello
I found this article
http://www.ss64.com/nt/slow_browsing.html

You can prevent the automatic addition of shortcuts by setting HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoRecentDocsNetHood to 1.

I want to disable the automatic creation of network shortcuts.

But the registry that is mentioned in the article i can not find.

Anyone know how to do this?

thanks
