Windows 7: Help removing a context menu

Help removing a context menu

i have a windows 7 machine which is to be used in a library environment and run web browser only.

so far i have successfully removed everything, bar short cuts to the pages i want.

no context menu in explorer
no context menu on taskbar
no context menu on start menu
no context menu in browser area (where the pages load not the toolbars etc)

my problem is that i added "Links" to the taskbar and included 5 shortcuts to 5 urls, if i right click on these i get a context menu which i can't find out how to remove.

anyone got any ideas? other than turning off right click completely. (not that it would be needed by the user logged in, handy to keep it for the admin account)

i can probably get a screen shot if my explanation isn't great.
