Hi John,

See if this applies:

This restriction stops remote shared folders from being added to Network
Places whenever you open a document in the shared folder.

Go to Start/Run/Regedit and navigate to:



Value Name: NoRecentDocsNetHood
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = track shares, 1 = disable tracking)

Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called
'NoRecentDocsNetHood' and edit the value according to the settings below.
Exit your registry, you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the
change to take effect.

All the Best,
