GPO Hide "My Computer" from desktop and start menu

I can find "Hide My Documents from Desktop" and "Hide My Documents from Start Menu" but what I want to do is hide the "My Computer" icon from desktops and start menus via AD group policy. Anyone know where this setting might be?

If it is Windows 2000 or XP.

Go to Start ==> Run ==> type gpedit.msc and click Ok.

Expand.
+User Configuration
 + Administrative Templates
  + Desktop

And you will see "Remove My Computer Icon from the Desktop" which will allow you to enable to disable that icon.

You can modify the those items. Including "Force Windows Classic Start Menu" which will prevent My Computer from showing.
