Remove Internet Explorer Pinned and Start menu shortcuts for All Users?
Posted on 2014-04-11
In Windows 7, I'm trying to get an image going. I'm not using Sysprep or anything yet. Jus trying to build before capturing. However, problem is, Internet Explorer shortcut re-appearing as pinned on taskbar, and as a Program shortcut in Start > All Progams for users who login.
I've tried everything I can as far as deleting known shortcuts from known locations. Yet when I delete a profile and log back on to that profile, or a brand new user, those pesky Internet Explorer shortcut icons re-appear.
Where am I not looking to remove them?
I've deleted from the following locations:
Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar\
deleting key HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Taskband
Taskband here doesn't show up for DefaultUser when I load the ntuser.dat hive in registry however
