Windows 7: How to disable the gear and star icon in IE 9

How to disable the gear and star icon in IE 9

I have a communal PC on a nursing wing and I have to disable all right-click context menus and menus in general to keep bored/disgruntled staff from changing settings. I have succeeded everywhere, using GPO and registry hacks except for the star and gear icon in IE 9 using Win 7 64. Does anyone know how to disable these or remove the menu options from them? Thanx in advance.
