I tried to set a policy that would not show the network neighborhood on a user desktop. I created a user, created a group and then created an OU. Next I added the user to the group, then I added the group to the OU and made sure the policy was applied. I gave the user read/write permission to the OU. When I tried to log on as the user the icon still showed up. What am I doing wrong?
Group Policy, amazingly, doesn't apply to security groups. It applies only to the user or computer accounts in the Site, Domain or OU. So, to answer your question directly, you'll need to move the user's account into the OU where the GPO is linked. Log back in as the user, and you're in business.
