    Think it was disabling context menus in Windows 7 via GPO 'Remove access to the context menus for the taskbar'. Haven't tested with Win 8 though.

    oh for this. There is a place in the appdata folder called WINX or WIN X and that has folders in there called Group 1, Group 2 and so on. In our default profile i deleted these folders and believe that done the trick.

    just found that helped i found its called the "Quick Access menu" currently trying to remove options via permissons rather than deleting them as it seems a sluightly less bad option and easy to gpo out

    edit yup that works

    edit 2 DONT DO THAT it works IF you already have a profile if not it wont allow you to create a new one hiding the files seems to work for new and existing profiles
