C should be hidden even to the admin?

Yes, After joining machine to domain c drive should be hidden to admin.

You need to ask three different questions.

For the second one try this.

Edit this to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList to d:\users\prother than the default %Systemdrive%\users

For #1 use a GPO or use this

Good comment,

Question 1: In case if already c drive is hidden with applied group policy, how can it can reviewed. Please post your valuable suggestion.

Nagendra Pratap SinghDesktop Applications SpecialistCommented:
GPO will apply only in an AD environment.

You can see all policies using RSOP.msc . But at the design stage, you should use registry because this is the image specification.
