Do you want to delete the link in the program menu, or just have it not visible to certain users? Are you trying to hide an application (if so, the user can always find and run the application unless you change permissions on the program file itself)?

Sorry you cannot prevent particular items from appearing on the list, but you may disable the list entirely
