Hi,

Does anybody know why you can't specify "Ncpa.cpl" and have the "Network
Connections" control panel applet hidden by using the policy editor?

Thanks Carey,

I had checked newsgroups containing .windowsxp. so didn't notice there was a
specific group for GP.

Hi Arie,

The Network connections folder is actually a Shell folder (though the CPL
applet is there to launch it quickly), and one way to hide the Network
Connections applet is to add the GUID {7007ACC7-3202-11D1-AAD2-00805FC1270E}
to NonEnum.
