disable network printer search

I've been trying to disable network printer search and have followed
directions but am unable to find it. I am doing the following:
1. Go to my computer
2. Push alt to bring up toolbar
3. Tools
4. Folder Options
5. View
Uncheck box named "automatically search for network printers."

I get to the last step but cannot find the box. Does anybody have any
ideas?
Thanks,
Greg

Re: disable network printer search
This shell feature (included folders as well as printers) was removed from
Vista.

The instructions are for XP.
