There is not a way to accomplish what you are wanting thru Quickbooks, you can do file level security on NTFS to accomplish the not being able to open the sample file, create a new company (at least on the network)

Maybe you can edit that dialog using a resource editor but you defenitly loose all kinds of support from quickbooks that way.

How about giving them a shortcut directly to the QBW data file ? I know it's not quite the full solution but it should never show that menu again.

javidmasti - There is no way to accomplish what you are wanting, I had a tech support call with Quickbooks last week and did ask them the question while I was fixing something else. This is not anything they said can be done as well.
