    Remove "System Tools" from Start Menu Accessories?

    Does anyone know how to remove the System Tools that can be found in "Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools" I've googled for hours looking for the solution but cant.
    Does anyone know how to disable this via GPO?

    Thanks

    Xp or Vista / 7?

    Basically you need to remove it from:
    c:\documents and settings\All Users\Start Menu
    or
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories

    And you can deny access to it via gpo: Apply or modify permission entries for objects using Group Policy: User Rights

    But you may wanna test the outcome of that. Normally it is best to delete it in your image. Make sure you don't remove stuff that is required under the DDA. Disability and the Equality Act 2010 : Directgov - Disabled people

    If you don't know much about it seek advice.

    For what it's worth I always found it easier to set the start menus by folder redirection in GPOs rather than pee about with "default user" \ "all users" start menus. That way you can start from blank and only add what you want as opposed to fiddling around trying to remove things that are going to affect all users logging on.
