    Help with WinXP Home networking
    ok, i just noticed that in XP home that when I click on Network Neighbourhood>>Entire Network that there are 2 new icons:

    Micorsoft Terminal Services
    and
    Web client network

    There is nothing inside them when opened. It's bugging me and I want to remove these. How can I do that?

    TIA!

    Alter settings and customise your computer in WINDOWS 95/98/ME

    In the registry, go to;

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENT VERSION\POLICIES\EXPLORER

    Select NEW from the edit option
    Click DWORD to create a new entry
    Name it NoNetHood set the value to 1 and reboot
    To restore the icon change the value to 0

    Thanks Ray. Long time no chat buddy!

    But unfortunately, the instructions are for removing network neighbourhood. I wanted to remove two icons within My Network Places.

    My Network Places>>Entire Network>>Microsoft Terminal Services
    and
    My Network Places>>Entire Network>>Web Client Network

    I use to only see Microsoft Windows Network, just wondering how these got on my machine.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Ian, your right ... it's been awhile since we chatted!

    Sorry about the wrong info ... guess I should have slowed down and carefully reviewed your request.

    Run > gpedit.msc > Local Computer Policy >
    User Configuration > Administrative Templates >
    Windows Components > Desktop > Hide My Network Places icon
    on Desktop > Enabled > OK

    This policy only affects the desktop icon. It does not
    prevent users from connecting to the network or browsing
    for shared computers on the network.

    Hey Ray,

    Thanks again for the reply. I tried running gpedit.msc but Windows XP Home cannot find it? Maybe this is an XP Pro function?

    As for the options you provided, it still sounds like it is just hiding the Network Neoghbourhood Icon on the desktop. I am actually trying to delete these 2 icons inside Network neighbourhood>>Entire Network.

    My Network Places>>Entire Network>>Microsoft Terminal Services
    and
    My Network Places>>Entire Network>>Web Client Network

    I only want

    My Network Places>>Entire Network>>Microsot Windows Network

    Any ideas?

    Hi Ian, I took some time and tried to find a solution for you .... I keep finding the same gpedit.msc instructions in my research. Sorry I couldn't help you.

    Here's a good starting point at Microsoft:
