I have a domain where we have changed the clients from XP over to windows 7. This is one of multiple domains in a school, so we don't want users to be able to view the network.
I have managed through a couple of registry hacks and an adm template to hide all references to the network in windows explorer, however the file open/save dialogs don't respect this setting and the entire network is browsable.
I managed to control this behaviour in windows xp by using the policies "no entire network in network locations" and "no computers near me in network locations", but these policies are supported on "Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000 operating systems only".
Can anyone help with any suggestion to stop users being able to see and browse the network in this way?
I have scoured the group policies but I haven't yet been able to track down a setting that will let me control this behaviour.
Thanks in advance for any help.
