Remove Internet Explorer 10 Icon from start menu on Citrix Server

Hi,

I've got a windows server 2008 R2 Server running Citrix with published desktops. I'm looking to remove the internet explorer icon from the start menu for all users. I used to do this by editing the registry like below but this doesn't work for explorer 10. Does anyone know of the equivalent setting for Internet Explorer 10 ??  


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\>{26923b43-4d38-484f-9b9e-de460746276c}]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\>{26923b43-4d38-484f-9b9e-de460746276c}]

What are you trying to achieve? Why not simply removing IE 10 instead?

By default I want the ie 10 icon removed from the start menu for all new users. Previously this was achieved by the above reg change effectively removing ie 9 shortcut creation for all new users.
I need ie 10 for some users so can't remove.
I could use a script or gpo preferences to delete the link once it's created but this can slightly slow login and also sometimes takes 2 logins to work depending in the order of creation and running of the gp or script ...
So really I'd like something  similar to the above

there is nothing stopping a user from running iexplorer.exe from the run command. so, you can create 2 groups, maybe called Allowed Internet Explorer and Not Allowed Internet Explorer, and add users into appropriate groups.

now browse to the location of the iexplorer.exe and assign appropriate permissions, meaning deny to "Not Allowed Internet Explorer Groups"

Sorry what I was trying to achieve was to prevent the users from getting the internet explorer icon on the start menu. Previously this was achieved by deleting the sub path from the above reg key's.

The desktop and start menu are locked down so users can't run iexplorer.exe from a run command.

when a new user logs on currently the only way I can prevent the internet explorer icon is to run a script or gp to delete it this takes 2 logins generally where as the previous solution for IE 9 was a reg change that was effective upon first login.

You can use group policies;

Hide the IE Icon on the Desktop

Create a new group policy;

2.Navigate to User Configuration, Administrative Templates, and then select Desktop in the left column of the Group Policy editor.
hide-ie-desktop-1

3.Double-click Hide Internet Explorer icon on desktop in the Settings section of the Group Policy editor.
4.Select Enable and then click OK to save the changes.

you will have to use security groups that this policy will be applied/denied to.

cheers

You can get the GUID of IE 10 using wmic command. Open powershell using admin account and type
wmic product list

Open in new window

search for Internet explorer and get its associated GUID. Then in the registry search for this GUID locating the StubPath under it.

Hope this helps.
