Security Issues with windows explorer

    Question

  • I am running a Windows Server 2008 R2 server with around 30 computers and 50 or so users.  I have 2 Organizational Units setup that both have the same GPO setup and implement folder redirection.  One of the things that I have implemented is that the users cannot see any network items except for their home directories.  This is working good except for 2 computers.  These 2 computers login to the network just fine and apply the login scripts and GPO's but they let the user see the entire network when they click on the "Network" link in windows explorer (for everyone else it just shows their user directories".  I cannot for the life of me figure this one out.  Please help!  BTW, the computers in question are running windows 7 if that matters.

  • Hi,

    What related event error can you read in the Event Viewer?

    Please perform the following steps on these two clients:

    Delete All Group Policy Registry keys

    ========================

    1. Click “Start”, type “regedit.exe” (without quotation marks) into “Start Search” box and press Enter.

    2. Locate the following key:

     

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft]

     

    Right click on "Microsoft", click "Export"; please name the file as "RegBackup" (without quotation marks) and then save it to the C:\ drive as a backup.

     

    Note: In case we need to undo the modification, we can double click this RegBackup.reg file to restore the registry key.

     

    3. Highlight Microsoft and click "Delete".

    4. Please repeat the above steps for the following registry keys.

     

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft]

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects]

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies

    Note: if some keys do not exist, please ignore them.

    3. Exit the Registry Editor.

    After that, restart the computer to reapply the Group Policy to check the result.

    If it does not work, please also refer to the following Microsoft TechNet articlses for more troubleshoot information:
