START MENU - Tales of a determined context menu
Date: Tue, 15 Feb 2005 08:43:06 -0800
I have Server 2003 and XP Pro WkStn's. I have disabled all the context menus
I know of in group policy, yet one will not go away.
As I have standard menus for each group, I have redirected the Start Menu to
a network share (call it Menu$)
On XP wkstn, if you click Start Menu -> right click "all programs" you get a
context menu with "explore" on it. Click explore and all the network drives
and folders cheerfully pop up, with Menu$ at the end. Included are the
SYSVOL, NETLOGON folders and all the shares, hidden or otherwise. Although
users cannot delete/modify/create anything, it is untidy and allows them to
read too much for my liking.
How can I prevent this last context menu. (I remeber the same problem with
W2K Workstations which I never solved).
All donations gratefully received, as I have very little hair left to pull
