Why not use Group Policy Preferences Shortcuts and set the action to delete?

Ok I went under user config | preferences | windows settings | shortcuts

It asks me location but it only has "all user programs". How do I specify if its the x86 or regular program files? I want to remove the 64 bit version and they both have the same name (iexplorer), the only difference is its in a different folder.
