    Remove Libraries by GPO

    I want to completely remove the libraries from windows 7 I mean eradicate the damn thing. I have seen a number of guides for hiding them etc.

    Does anyone have a complete guide to removing them via GPO/regedit.

    Followed this but it only hides them -

    Windows 7 - Removing Libraries


    I should point out I had tried to use redirection to point all these folders to their documents area but its not working.

    (OS windows 7 ent deployed by Server 2008R2 SP1)

    You can't remove them entirely - we use that above hiding library thing here, works very well indeed.

    Might have to go with it, does anyone know which GPO it is to remove them from the start menu too.

    Just thought I would mention if you remove the user information from the start menu it kills the start menu folder redirection.
