Stop IE 5.5's searching Other computers

By traciw1998 ·
I am setting up student pc's w/ w2k and IE 5.5 sp2. When you select the search button in IE it will let the user search computers. All the have to do is type *.* and they will see all the NT/W2K machines out there. They still need to know passwords to get into the boxes but I would prefer not to tempt them. Does anyone know how to disable this?

from the servers you set a policy which allows those computers to only see themselves and does not allow any other computers to be seen. alternatively you could set them up on their own subnet if they are not going to access any other network resources (printers ect)
