cannot modify old group policy - deprecated items

I have an old Group policy that I used the Internet Explorer Maintenance location to modify settings for Internet Explorer.
I understand this no longer exists instead I should use "Preferences"
I now have used preferences but I want to delete/remove  anything that references Internet Explorer Maintenance.
I would prefer not to delete the entire group policy and recreate it.
We were a 2003 Active Directory environment but are now 2008 .
We were running Internet explorer 7 and 8 and now we are strictly IE 11, Firefox and chrome.
I've attached a picture which shows where in the structure under User Configuration I used to see Internet Explorer Maintenance.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Build yourself a workstation with an IE version no newer than 9 and edit the policy from GPMC on it.
