Remove internet explorer shortcuts for new user profile
Posted on 2009-04-27
We are deploying a new terminal server / citrix environment to the users (2008 64bit) after redirecting the start menu with a GPO and removing the "All Users" integration the users only see the items on the start menu which we give them.
However, when a new user logs on for the first time (does not have an existing roaming profile) Internet explorer decides to infect the start menu with the following icons
Programs \ Internet Explorer
Programs \ Internet Explorer (64-bit)
Programs \ Accessories \ System Tools \ Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)
I've tried everything I can think of to get stop this, but have failed.
- We have reset the "Default" profile to one that didnt have these icons
- We have cleared the "Default" user start menu
- We've even tried to set the "IsInstalled" to 0 on several ActiveSetup registry keys, this did remove one of the icons but were stuck getting rid of the others
Nothing is in the RunOnce or Run registry keys, this is something strange that IE is doing for the first time when a new user logs on.
Any tips ?
