How do I remove the ability for a user to click on "Open Network and Dial-up Connections" after right-clicking on the network icon in the task bar.  I have sucessfully removed the ability to click on "Disable" by using group policy but I cannot find a way to remove the "Open Network and Dial-up Connections" function.
