Windows Lockdown GPO

I need a GPO that locks down Windows 7.
User will only be able to see :
The Desktop with Printers shortcut, so that they can add / delete printers
on the Start button, the will only be able to see : Shutdow /Restart/Logoff
I also want Internet explorer to open up when they login to the computer

Which GPO settings and/or script that can achieve that ?

Thanks

Hello Jsk

There might be a contradiction in your request

option 1 you want access to add/remove printer "settings"
option 2 removes ALL sort of settings making 1. non valid
unless of course you have a server printer page, that will pick up drivers from a Distribution point and will do this silently.I seen this often in hospital settings..

if I was you I would set a GPO for all printers that users could print to,  then set another GPO to remove settings...

option 3,, this is possible by setting a shortcut of your browser in the windows startup folder
for bunch of Workstations then you would involve a script

Yes We have print server.
the shortcut on the user's desktop  will open up the Printers window to Add/delete printer
We do not use Printers mapping by user groups as you suggested..
