Windows 7: How to use Local Group policy to prevent access to User Account settin

How to use Local Group policy to prevent access to User Account settin

I'm creating a local group policy to lock down a Windows 7 Pro Workstation for use in the Staff room.
It's the first time I've used it, previously I've worked a bit with AD. but I've been following on line tutorials and using google and I'm nearly there with it.
But I'm stuck on one thing. My approach has been to remove access to pretty much everything apart from IE, Firefox and Skype icons on the task bar.
I've got the start menu empty apart from the shutdown button, which is what I want but at the top of the start menu is the users icon/picture thing and if i click on it it takes me to "user accounts". I can't for the life of me work out how to get rid of the picture or just stop this happening.

Can anyone help please?
