Trying to help a friend who's running Win2K Sp4. She's lost the Network Neighborhood (or is it My Network Places?) icon from her desktop.

I guess it's probably controllable from somewhere in gpedit.msc but I've no idea where to start looking.

Advice please :-)

Right click on the Desktop, choose Properties, Desktop tab and click on "Customize Desktop". Internet Explorer, My Computer, My Documents and My Network Places can be added or removed here.
