Does anyone know how one could easily prevent Client Access for Windows 95
from putting the "AS/400 Operation Navigator" on the Windows 95 Desktop or
anywhere else on the PC?

We've noticed it seems to be both a powerful and potentially dangerous tool,
specifically in it's ability to give the average user the accidental (or
intentional) ability to delete or view physical files on the AS/400 with a
few simple mouse clicks.

We recently upgraded our OS to V4R2 and noticed that CAWIN95's upgrade
(V3R1M3 & SF45363) places this "disturbing" tool right on the desktop for
any curious user to find and play with.

A more important question: Is it easier to disable the ability to drill down
to the physical file level via the AS/400 itself?
