Internet Explorer pinnedup shortcut creation problem for new users on Server 2008 R2

1. On the Server 2008 R2 under testuser I configured pinned apps in taskbar and start menu. Logged the user off.
2. When in the step 1 I pinned shortcut for IE, I pinned x86 shortcut in taskbar and in start menu.
3. According to the article, i did every step.
4. After I logged on to server under testuser1 - luckily, all pinned apps were at right place, but...
5. In both places (taskbar and start menu) there were already pinned shortcuts for IE, but they were linked for IEx64.
6. In Answered question at EE it is said that I have to delete some keys from registry:

Delete the following to prevent the 64bit shortcuts from being created:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\>{26923b43-4d38-484f-9b9e-de460746276c}\Stubpath

Delete the following to prevent the 32bit shortcuts from being created:
HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\>{26923b43-4d38-484f-9b9e-de460746276c}\Stubpath

...BUT, I did a search within all the registry, and THERE ARE NO ">{26923b43-4d38-484f-9b9e-de460746276c}" key at all.

Question: How to force not creating x64 shortcuts for IE, and create x86 shortcuts, as they are already in Default user profile in pinned apps (start menu and taskbar)?

You can use something like this https://github.com/mcennedy/automation-scripts/blob/master/PowerShell/Set-PinnedApplication.ps1 to create a RunOnce script that first deletes the existing pinned shortcuts, and then pin new x86 shortcuts.
