I'm rolling out Google Chrome to my users via the msi file they provided.  I also imported the ADM file into Group Policy and can customize almost everything I need from there.  However I have been unable to find a way to disable the sign in and users section under personal stuff, has anyone been able to successfully do that?

This has nothing to do with what I'm asking, when you open up Chrome for the 1st time it tries to get you to sync it with your gmail account.  I don't want this, we have gmail disabled on our network for data leakage purposes.

you have no control of this behavior, default chrome flow is trying to sync your gmail account with the browser.
if browser detects that no sign in was made to gmail account, every time you open new instance of chrome you get a tab "Set up Chrome with your Google Account".

i found out that if you click "Skip for now" in the sign in tab, then from now on you'll no get this tab again when running chrome instance.
that could be stored in application data on the user's FS or registry.
so i guess u can simulate this action once installation is complete.
the only thing left is to find out what the browser does when user click this option.

I have noticed that also, the problem is how can I simulate that, I have 3000 machines I have to push this out too, I have ask the users to do that and I can't do it manually.

that's true, but what i'm looking is where chrome stores this information?
once user click "Skip for Now" the browser must save this information in order to not open the sign tab next time user starts chrome.
once we know that, u can run a script which does that right after the installation.
