I know you can use Group Policy for the domain to SET it to whatever you like.

True, I've seen articles on that.  I'd like to scan the domain to see what computers are missing it.  Perhaps this doesn't matter if a GPO can be devised that will enable it, however, on the ones I've seen where it is not enabled, it is not even installed.

go to the command prompt and type:

Net View

The same protocol (netbios) used to populate this list has two requirements:

1) file and print sharing is enabled
2) netbios is enabled.

Otherwise this list will not populate, nor with they show up in "my network places"
