I need to remove or hide some of the options from the Start Button in the terminal server so that users cannot access (eg. Administrative Tools, Server Manager, Windows Security, Shutdown etc.) when they login.  Please advise how to do this. Thanks

These settings can all be found in group policy. I've listed some of the settings down below.

You will need to create a policy and apply it, either via an OU or by security filtering to your non-admin users.

Computer Settings:

Administrative Templates > System > Server Manager > Do not display server manager...

User settings:

Administrative templates > Control Panel > show only specified control panel items > enabled > mlcfg32.cpl

Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs >
  • Hide Add New Programs page
  • Hide Add/Remove Windows Components page
  • Hide Change or Remove programs page
  • Hide the add a program from CD rom...
  • Hide the add programs from Microsoft...
  • Hide the Add programs from your network...
  • Hide the Set Program Access..
  • Remove Add or Remove Programs

Start Menu adn Task bar >
  • Lock the Taskbar
  • Prevent changes to Taskbar and Start Menu Settings
  • Remove access to the context menus for the taskbar
  • Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep, and Hibernate commands
  • Remove Games link from Start Menu
  • Remove Help menu from Start Menu  
  • Remove links and access to Windows Update
  • Remove Music icon from Start Menu
