I know this is a simple one, but I am having a brain freeze.  

How do I prevent users from browsing the network?  Right now, they can see all devices on the network.  There is really only one device that they need, our file server, so there is no need to browse.

Is this a GPO setting?  

Our clients are W7 and XP.  Our servers are W2003
