GPO to remove "Games" from programs menu

Id like to put a Group Policy in place that removes the "games" menu from Start > Programs. What is the best way to do this and deploy it across my network?

Thanks.

That's a great solution - be sure to apply it to the "All User" profile:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Games

Likely only using a logon script.

rd %userprofile%\StartM~1\Programs\Games /s /q


Of course, you'll have to tailor the path for your workstations.

Actually the scenario from Netman66 is more accurate because the games need to be removed from all the profiles currently established on the machine.

It is in the "All Users" profile on each local machine, not the individual user profile.

and for a suggestion...make a "default image" that you deploy (manually, using RIS, using SMS, whatever), and have that image not have the games installed or in the start menu.
