File Server Resource Manager - Quota Management configuration

I am configuring 'Quota Management' on my Server 2003 R2 file server.  When a user reaches their 'hard quota' they are prompted that the disk is out of space and have the option of running the "disk cleanup" utility.

I do not want users to have access to the "disk cleanup" utility, but I can find any where to turn it off.  I was also going through GPO's and couldn't find anything there either.  Any suggestions?

Hi
Well the tools is named cleanmgr.exe and is located in system32 folder. So if you want you can denied the access to this file. Another approach is to disable the low disk space warning, but in this case the user get an disk full message without any warning.
Anyway don't try to delete or rename the file, because Windows file protection is there and will undo your change.

I'm hoping to be able to remove the option completely.  If I just deny access, then the 'access denied' message will surely result in trouble tickets.
