Hi,
 
I have run into a bit of an issue while trying to tie down a users PC as
much as possible and still give access to allow the user to change their
background.
 
OS is Vista.
 
User configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Windows Components
--> Windows Explorer --> Prevent access to drives from My Computer 
        Enable --> Removes A, B ,C ,D
 
When this settings if set and a user tries to Personalize Desktop back
grounds and selects --> Location Windows Wallpaper access to this is
disabled.
 
When I disable the Prevent access to drives from My  Computer the
Personalize does work fine but I run into the other issue the "Search
Bar"
 
From the start Menu when you enter c: in the search in finds folders
which are on the C: drive and allows you to access the various files in
the folders.
 
I have the settings
 
User configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Windows Components
--> Windows Explorer --> Hide these specified drives in my computer
        Enable --> Removes A, B ,C ,D
 
which does block direct access if you try to open C: or D: from my
computer.
 
My problem is that I do not want the user to be able to search local
drives but I do want to give access to the personalize desktop option.
 
I have given the user specific access to the c:\windows\Web\Wallpaper
folder
 
 
I have also have
 
User configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Start Menu and
Taskbar 
    see attached file "Start Menu and Taskbar "
 
I seem to get either one working but not both.
 
Is there any way to disable the search bar or stop it searching local
drives ?
 
hope I'm missing something simple ......
 
cheers
Ronnie
