I am configuring a box with NT4.0 workstation SP5 and am wanting to hide the NetWork Neighborhood from all clients. We have been able to do this for an individual client but when the next comes along guess what's back. Any suggestions ??

Hi, you can hide network neighborhood by implementing system policies on your nt machines (can also do it on win9.x if you have those machines as well). Open policy editor under admin tools (common) and click on new file. You will see default computer and default user. Double-click on user and navigate to shell ->restrictions->hide network neighborhood. Place a checkmark in the box. Save file as ntconfig.pol in netlogon share (%systemroot%\system32\repl\import\scripts). Config.pol if 9.x. The help menu will guide you through other customizations such as assigning policies to certain groups or only certain individuals. Hope this helps.

With any new user the icon returns. Hiding this icon is needed to prevent users from poss changing network config.

hmm.. interesting question.
When you rate these answers could you please explain why you would want to do this. I'm just curious as to when this would be a good idea.
