I need to remove a shortcut and the install directory to an application on about 300 machines.  I want to do this via Group Policy and not scripting.  I'm not the best with scripts.  Any help would be great!

I see under Computer Configuration_security Settings_filesystem I can add a folder but can't find a setting to delete a file or folder.  Any more help?

I am using server 2003 and really don't see a preferences tab.  I hope I'm not over complicating this.
