I have followed this guide to disable the "Network" link in Windows Explorer by changing a registry key and that is working. The link is gone from every application other than Internet Explorer's save-as file browser. This is for a public library public access computer on our network, so this is bad. I have searched extensively online as well as through group policy options for Windows 7 and Internet Explorer, but haven't found a way to disable this link. Any suggestions?
EDIT I have tried the following GPOs to no avail. Both state they only work with older versions of Windows, so it is not surprising they didn't work.
- No Entire Network in Network Locations
- No Computers Near Me in Network Locations
