Thank you for the reply. Currently we are not in production with 2008
nor Vista so the ADMX files I am sure will not work with XP let alone
2K. I definitely am trying to prevent users from creating new shares,
but not totally remove the current ones until they are evaluated.
Thank you for the comments,

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


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).
