    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.

  4. 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.
