Windows 7: Exclude one computer from "Everyone" group?

Exclude one computer from "Everyone" group?

Is this possible?

I have several computers and several users, where we wouldn't be able to survive without the "Everyone" group, as we are constantly sharing and unsharing. As in, having to choose to share with each user individually is not possible.

However, that creates a problem. What if I want to leave one computer out of the group, so that the folders are shared with everyone except for it?

Since no one has an idea..

How about a way to disable access to the Network folder?

I can remove the icon, but I would still be able to access the Network folder with a simple Windows search.. so that does nothing.

I need some way to make sure no one can access the Network folder, but in a way that I would still be able to map a network drive from the network..
