Hey all,
I am getting the following error:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Userenv
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1000
Description: The Group Policy client-side extension Security was passed flags 
(17) and returned a failure status code of (3). 
Microsoft (Via Q article # 259398) Says... 
The \\Active Directory Domain Name\Sysvol share is a special share that 
requires the distributed file system (DFS) client to make a connection, and a 
valid Domain name record in DNS. If the DFS client is disabled, the domain 
records are missing, or the DNS records are not being registered properly, the 
error messages are generated. 
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems 
that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot 
guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor 
incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
Check the following registry value: 
DisableDFS: REG_DWORD: range: 0 or 1
0 = enabled; 1 = disabled
Default: 0 
Make sure that the value is set to 0, enabling the Dfs client. Also, File and 
Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks must be enabled on the interface.
I went to my registry, and I do not have the "DisableDFS" entry.
Do I need to add this? or... What?

Hello Everyone:
I can't seem to find a way to hide the My Computer icon on a user's desktop.  
Does anyone know how to do this?  Thanks.
