I have a client who would like to alter the default address bar in W2K.  Specifically, he wants to get rid of the icon for Outlook Express.  I can remove the icon after a user logins, but he wants to change the default Address bar.  Does anyone have any idea how to do this?

Thanks for your comments.  Winguide did not have what I was looking for.  tonnybrandt is correct: I do mean the quick launch area next to the start button.  The client wants the Outlook Express icon to be removed from the default address bar.

I know I can right click on it and delete it from the Address Bar.  That is not the issue!!  The client wants me to use Sysprep to create a master image.  Machines created with the master image will be distributed to users with new domain accounts who have never logged in before.  The first time they logon, the Address Bar will have Outlook Express.  The idea is to remove Outlook Express from the "default" Address Bar in the master image, so no matter who logs in they will have an Address Bar with no Outlook Express icon.

Thanks...the IEAK trick will do it!!  The client has the W2K Server RK, so we should have it.  I appreciate the answer.
