I have 50 workstations running Windows 7.  I need to remove an item from each of their Startup Folders (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup).  Is there a way to do this globally using Group Policy?

If you know the filename then create a script which runs the following:

Del c:\lrogramdata\microsoft\windows\start menu\programs\startup\xxx.xx

In the above command xxx.xx is the filename and make this script a computer logon script.

That should work perfectly.  I don't know why I didn't think of that.  Thanks for the help.
