Help on Start Menu

The title might be misleading... I'm trying to get rid of help when I press "start"..  This is probably a little unclear.. I dont want it to display "help" on the sidebar (I know the terminology is wrong; sorry).  When it comes with Run Help Search Settings Documents Programs etc.. I just want to make it go away, and I'm stumped.. I've looked through the registry, but nothing's obvious..

Thanks,

Lee

Hi,
Click on Start and choose RUN, in command line type in MMC. Click on Console, and choose Add/Remove Snap-in, in the next window, choose Add and select Group Policy. In Group policy windows, under User Configuration, Administrative templates, Start Menu and Taskbar, enable "Remove Help from Start Menu".
This should do your job.

Just to make sure, you are using Win2kpro, right? If you are using NT4, this can be done by using POLEDIT which is earlier version of MMC.
