I am trying to restrict the start menu for a domain user. I have managed to remove everything I want apart from the "Startup" folder under all programs.

The start folder is empty buy it is still visible in the start menu.

Is there a GPO to remove this or do I need to do something with the user profile.

This is an XP Pro machine.

Supposedly it can't be deleted but it can be hidden. Check the comments here.

That worked. Just marked the folder as hidden in the local user profile. I had already set up a gpo to stop the ALL USERS profile being included.

Just need to convert that into a roaming profile and its done.

Many thanks
