If a user browses to a Windows 2008 R2 UNC path, i.e. \\hostname, they will see shares but they will also see "Scheduled Tasks". How can this be hidden so it doesn't appear. I have seen similar requests when searching around, i.e. http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/itanswers/how-remove-scheduled-task-from-share/ but 2008 doesn't seem to have the same keys?

Dear adamshields,

Do you have tried to search for the key {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} ?

That was it. I was browsing the shares as an administrator, limited users do not see the "Scheduled Task" dialog in the share.
