Would you be able to get this to work for DOS prompts as well? :)

comment Security Concern with my Windows 7 Box at Work
@Adam, correct. I'm only using "my filesystem" colloquially. At my most altruistic I'm concerned about the well being of the entire company. But at the shallowest level I'm only concerned about my personal survival at the company (not to mention that this could potentially cause a legal problem for me if one was so inclined [by placing something illegal on my computer, etc]).

@Darth and music, both valid points. Bottom line, I'd like to prevent access to my file system. I'm going to investigate Admin Shares a bit more but I may go that route for the short term. But now that I have a better understanding of the issue (after reading through all these wonderful answers) I think I'm going to dig a little deeper at work and find out what's going on. As was pointed out above, if the HR computers are like this as well it could be real bad.

This is situation sounds way scarier than I thought it was. I don't really want to stir the pot but I'm going to bring this up to The Support Guy or the network admin on Monday. I can't really let it slide.

Re-reading it looks like I pass of The Support Guy as bumbling. He's not. He's sharp. If anything his response hinted at, "This is how it is and it's out of my control."

@Greg our network shares are slow. But I keep everything of any substance there (temp repos, docs, etc). The only things I'm concerned with on my C drive are configs for netbeans, hg, mvn, vim, putty, etc.
