Cannot disable 'Windows Security' option on Terminal Server using Group Policy

After installing the Desktop Experience feature for Windows 2008 R2 and promptly uninstalling it, Terminal Server users have an option in the start menu labelled Windows Security. The option enables them to change their password, which is not desirable. In Group Policy there is a setting to disable the option as described here  . After applying the setting to the Terminal Server User Domain Policy group, the Windows Security option still shows up in the Start Menu. I can confirm that the setting "Remove Windows Security item from Start menu" is applied to all Terminal Server Users, but it doesn't appear to be having an effect. Thank you for the help.

What happens when you look in C:\Users\All Users\Start Menu ?
Is it something you can delete there off the server itself?
You've uninstalled it, right? - so when you click on it does it load or does it fail saying the shortcut is invalid?

Also I assume you've done a gpresult or Resultant Set of Policy to make sure that the policy is applied properly?

gpresult shows that the policy isn't getting applied properly. Back to the GPO drawing board for me.
