Windows 7: Removing the user name icon from start menu

Removing the user name icon from start menu

Hi,

how is this done? If you're not unsure of what I'm speaking, check out this picture:

Imageshack - startmenu

I don't see the use for it, and I hate unnecessary items in my start menu. It's rather pointless unless you save all your personal and important files on your OS partition, which to me seems silly.

Thanks in advance,

Ottosen
