Hi there,
My clients have windows 7, once they click on my computer, on the left hand column they see favourites, libraries, computer, NETWORK (I would like this to be disabled via group policy under server 2008 domain) which option under the GPO would allow me so that my clients are unable to see the network.

I remember looking for a GPO to remove network but I don't think currently there is one.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
