Is there ANY way to keep my workstations from being seen when other domain users when they cloci computer & then click the network button to view the network??? I've used the net config server /hidden:yes on a few workstations & it does not seem to be hidding them. I have a Windows 2008 domain with Window 7 computers. I don't want users to be able to see the computer names in network places/neighborhood.
