hi rustberger,
thx for the tip.
i'm not sure if i can really do this, but i think i have access from the computer to the control panel, from there i can access the the taskbar and there i can modify the start menu.

@koolkat77

@all
i still would prefer the way via registry or group policies.
if somebody knows a way, please let me know.

@koolkat77
i know this tutorial, but this goes into the HKEY_CURRENT_USER branch, but i don't want to remove the computer-icon for my administrator. i want to remove it for a special user or for the users group.
