Hiding Workgrups

How do you hide a workgroup from appearing in My Network Places? That is, we
have Windows XP single station workgroups that should not appear in the
Microsoft Windows Network list. I've seen tips on reconfiguring network
topology, but I can't make those changes.

Ward,

Your question is sort of an inverse to most questions asked here. You have
various computers, in different workgroups from the majority of your computers,
and you don't want those workgroups enumerated?

Try setting restrictanonymous to 1 or 2.
