Preventing a user from accessing harddisk remotely

Dear Experts,

Consider the following scenario: I have a group policy to make a user named "user01" an administrator in all Windows XP computers that are member of our domain.

I want to apply a new group policy to prevent user01 from accessing other computers harddisks remotely (by \\computer\C$) but in the same time allowing domain admins to access computers harddisks remotely.

I need to apply this policy in such a way that when user01 physically logs on to the computer he can access all harddisk but he cannot do that remotely.

Is this possible to be implemeted ?
