sorry, i forgot to show u how to do it using gpedit.msc

Start > run > gpedit.msc
browse to
User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Start Menu and Taskbar \
Remove the Search item from the Start menu, and disables some Windows
Explorer search elements....

This options removes the CTLR+F function too
