Hi there,
Have 3 DC (2 windows server 2008 R2 (Serv1, Serv2 and one server 2012 R2, Serv3).  Just downloaded the templates for office 2007 and 2013 onto Serv3 and put them onto the local repository of that DC i.e c:\windows\policyDefinitions made language folder and put ADM files for en-us in it. for ADMX files just put all ADMX files into it.  Fired up GPO and I can see under the administrative templates the templates for 2007 and 2013.  
Question: Before this I was able to see the windows explorer under windows components in the GPO, now its not there
not sure if I have to download administrative templates for this? which ones? and download link?  I just want to disable/remove the network icon from appearing in the windows explorer in the left column.   Need help

Excellent guys, worked like a charm.  I really appreciate your timely response.  
One thing for me the group policy pref/ policies would not kick in (may be because its a RDS server) instead of wasting time, simply apply changes on the local machine and now any user logging onto that machine via RDS would not see the network icon, libraries/fav.  
Thanks again for your answers.
