Ok, I'm working on a XP SP2 RIS image for a laptop, and I'm trying to stop those irritating outlook express and media player shortcuts from appearing in everyones profile. What I'm also trying to do is find a method that means if I send a service pack out to these machines in future the shortcuts still wont appear.

I've been looking at this page: http://www.windowsdevcenter.com/pub/a/windows/2004/11/16/JIT.html but the class path it talks about ({44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C})doesn't exist on my machines, I've found one with Outlook express in it with a slightly different class ID and tried ammending the StubPath string to HideStubPath but the Outlook express shortcut still appears when I create a new user profile from the default user profile which definitely does not contain the shortcut.

I havn't tried the media player Class ID yet but there are several and I don't want to change things uneccesarily.
