Prohibit access to the Advanced Settings item on the Advanced menu

Determines whether the Advanced Settings item on the Advanced menu in Network Connections is enabled for administrators. The Advanced Settings item lets users view and change bindings and view and change the order in which the computer accesses connections network providers and print providers. If you enable this setting (and enable the “Enable Network Connections settings for Administrators” setting) the Advanced Settings item is disabled for administrators. Important: If the “Enable Network Connections settings for Administrators” is disabled or not configured this setting will not apply to administrators on post-Windows 2000 computers. If you disable this setting or do not configure it the Advanced Settings item is enabled for administrators. Note: Nonadministrators are already prohibited from accessing the Advanced Settings dialog box regardless of this setting.
