Good call Jamie. The one thing I will add Craig, is that if the user has
local administrator, none of this can stop them from doing what they want.

I thought you could do this through local security policy, but I guess I was


The best option is to use the new, FREE GPP extensions available on Vista
SP1 RSAT or Server 2008. Under [Computer Configuration > Preferences >
Windows Settings > Network Shares], right-click and select "New > Network
Share". Change the action to "Delete" and select the checkboxes that say
"Delete all regular shares" and "Delete all hidden non-administrative
shares". That should do the trick, because even if a user creates a share it
will get removed at the next background refresh of Group Policy. J

I am sure this topic has come up but thought I'd fire it out here to see if
anyone has created a GPO or otherwise to restrict users from creating shares
on their PC (even if they have local admin privileges).
