Windows 7: How to remove Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) from Windows 7 Start Menu

How to remove Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) from Windows 7 Start Menu

Hi all,

Got a problem with using SYSPREP.

I tidy up all my Start menu items prior to sysprep, but after sysprep has run, and an end user logs in, they are getting an extra folder and item in the Start Menu...

It is Accessories - System Tools - Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)

This appears for every user that logs in, is there anyway of removing this permanently? It only appeared after sysprep, so any ideas if I can use a regfix prior to sysprepping or Group policy to remove it???
