How to Keep Shortcuts to Shares from being added to My Network Places
XP has a feature that causes a shortcut to be placed in My Network Places for each share on a remote computer that you access. If you don't want these shortcuts to be added, using XP Pro, you can edit your Local Security Policy to prevent this. The following instructions assume that the computer is not a member of a domain:
Click Start | Run and type mmc.exe. Click OK.
This opens an empty management console. Highlight the Console menu and click File-Add/Remove Snap-in.
Click Group Policy.
The default is Local Computer. Click Finish.
Click Close and OK to close the dialog box.
In the left pane under Local Computer Policy, click User Configuration to expand it.
Click to expand Administrative Templates.
Click to expand Desktop.
In the right pane, right click Do not add shares of recently opened documents to My Network Places.
No more shortcuts will be automatically added.
