Locked

Network Neighborhood deleted.

By tdubois ·
I have a user that was cleaning up files on her home machine. She says that she right-clicked on Network Neighborhood and selected delete. This is a Windows 98 computer.

Everything works OK except for networking. Networking under control panel says that "This option has been restricted by your administrator" (this is her home machine). Is there anyway to recreate this?

I only have 95/NT/ME/2000 to test with.

Sounds to me like it is locked through POLEDIT.EXE (registry). I know you can disable 'Network' in control panel and it will give you that exact message. There is also an option in poledit to hide Network Neighborhood on the desktop. I haven't been able to recreate what she said she did on Win98 and deleting the icon. I find that strange...maybe her kid was playing in Poledit or Tweak or something.

Easiest fix is to use Tweak UI

This behavior can occur if the TweakUI program is installed and configured to hide the Network Neighborhood icon.

RESOLUTION
To resolve this behavior, use the TweakUI program to enable the Network Neighborhood icon. To do so, use the following steps:

Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel and then double- click TweakUI.

Click the Desktop tab, click the Network Neighborhood check box to select it, click OK, and then click OK.

Restart your computer.

TweakUI is included with Microsoft Windows 98 Power Toys and is located on the Windows 98 CD-ROM in the Tools\Reskit\Powertoy folder. For additional information about TweakUI in Windows 98, please select the Power Toys Readme.txt from the following Microsoft Web site:

There is no option to deltete the Network Neighbourhood when you right click.So it is not allowing to delete.Network Neighbourhood might be renamed.

it is hard to find which components are missing.

Please try this:
run-->sfc-->then use the original win 98 CD requested by this program to copy the components needed.
But the shortcoming: it may create the original settings only if some other components have been upgraded when she use it.
