Remove personal folder from Start menu

After customizing my start menu, the last step i want to make is to hide the personal folder link from the Start menu, the one that is above the user picture not the one in the desktop. Any ideas?

Solved, finally found the right key:

Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
Create a new REG_DWORD value named Start_ShowUser under this key and assign it the value 0.
When the user next logs on, the user's root profile folder will not be shown on the Start menu.
