Prevent users from browsing and accessing network resources from the TS server

I want to know how to prevent users from browsing and accessing network resources from the TS server. If there is a way to disable the prompt to turn on network discovery and file sharing for TS users, and prevent them from accessing network resources by using UNC paths in the File open dialog box for a RemoteApp, etc.

Please do not give me this solution as this does not work  : http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/winserverGP/thread/1a914e11-ffe3-4ed2-ab7f-5d43fea9a715

Isolate the TS server from the LAN network.
Limit what the TS users can do on the network i.e. set them in a specific group and then deny said group any and all rights.

I need a better explanation , in terms of solution. Also, am looking for solution from and on a TS side. That is, can I make some/any change on the TS sever or in GP or any application + registry or some where that will limit the user from accessing "Network Places" on a TS server.
Please specify very clearly with the policy or registry, steps

To prevent someone from going to a different room in the house, you either lock the doors on the various rooms or not allow the individual access to the house at all.

You can not restrict by policy or registry access to one network share and not another.
What you can do is on the shares define who can access and who will be denied access.
Look at GPO user configuration\administrative templates\network for options

If the TS is on the domain and if the user logging in is a domain user, any access the user has when sitting in front of a workstation on the LAN will be the access the user has on the TS.
