Users can see network shares in Word 2010

Hi, I work in a school and have come across a problem in that our students when they go to Word, File, Open, the top bar defaults to the name of the server and if they click the arrow next to it, it shows all the network shares. They cannot access any but they can see them. I have enabled the do not show settings in group policy and have enabled access based enumeration on the share but it still shows. Does anybody know how I can stop this. word shares showing

In the word options -- go to advanced--In general --- click the file location.... under that modify the documents to the location of your choice

But that only changes the location. They still see the full server path and can click on the server drop down and see other shares.

I do not know about Office specifically, but this general behavior can be removed by simply (well, not so simply...) by disabling NetBIOS over TCP/IP on your network. (You need to do an analysis on your network to determine if any of your software requires NetBIOS to function.)

NetBIOS is a nearly dead protocol and should be abandonded at the first possible chance and NetBIOS is the protocol which is responsible for this behavior.

Most likely you have a GP which removes Network Neighborhood from the student's computers, but I guess Office breaks through that.

I briefly checked the Office Admin Templates, but couldn't find anything quickly in there which could help, but maybe a longer search through it could help (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=18968)

No nothing to do with Netbios. I have applied polices from Office 2010 to enable restricted browsing, turned of network discovery but still no joy.
