Do you have an example that I can use to create a batch file that will delete a link from the start menu of all users?

A lot depends on *where* the user profile is.  

Assuming it is local and on Windows 7:

cd %systemdrive%\users
for /d %f in (*) do del "%f\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\<folder>\<linkfile>

Open in new window


If you have a profile share, you'd do the same for command from the roaming profile directory.

This is all based on people having the link in their own start menu.  If it is in the All User's menu, it would be in %systemdrive%\programdata\Microsoft\windows\start menu\programs
