Windows 7: Remove the "Safety" tab from IE 11 tools with group policy

Remove the "Safety" tab from IE 11 tools with group policy

Is there any way to remove the "Safety" tab or it's contents from the tools button in the upper right hand corner of IE 11 with Group Policy 2008 r2. I am using a GPMC on a windows 8.1 computer running IE 11. All of the computers we manage are Windows 7 pro running IE 10 or IE 11. The computers I am trying to remove the "Safety" from are used as library catalog computers. We have them pretty well locked down with group policy and a squid server. I just need to remove the "Safety" or the contents in it. I would love to remove the "Tools" all together but haven't found a way.
I thought maybe I could use the "Force Full Screen" but need a back, forward and home button.

Thanks for any help you can give.

We probably have some members here that could figure that out and if I Googled hard enough I'd find an answer for you but the best place to find an answer would probably be here:

How do I prevent users from changing the default language from the manage add-ons? I have the policy disable changing language settings enabled but they can still change it.
