Running Win 7 Pro on domain with Server 2008r2 and I am trying to find a GP to make the navigation pane that appears in all of the common dialog boxes in Win 7 (save as, open, browse...) look like they did in Windows XP with the use of the Places bar. I have circled in red on the attached screenshot what I am referring to. I don't want the users to see the standard Win 7 nav pane with the tree listing of Favorites, Libraries, Computer, etc.

I have search and searched for a solution for this but can't seem to find one. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
