Windows 7: Windows 7 Local Group Policy: How to Remove Orphan\Broken IEM Folders

Windows 7 Local Group Policy: How to Remove Orphan\Broken IEM Folders

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know how to remove this orphaned Internet Explorer Maintenance Menu and its subs in Local Group Policy Editor, User Config, Windows Settings? (see screenshot attached)

I am fully aware of what this is and the fact that it's related to upgrading to IE 11.

I do not use IE or have any policies that I care about or know of and I have already tried to do a Browser Reset on it to no avail. I do have some old Dial-up and VPN RAS entries in Internet Settings but I do not use them anymore and they have been backed up anyway.

I have found some registry keys that I think may do the trick but I figured I would see if anyone has a definitive answer before I try a manual removal of them just to avoid any potential headaches.

I also get an MMC Snap-in error when I try to open one of the sub-menu options (see screenshot #2)

How to copy local Group Policy?
I have a large network of about 500 machines on a domain. I have set up a local account for exams, with a special local Group Policy that is for non-administrators. The group policy restricts almost everything apart from a few applications. I need to copy this GP over to another 20-30 machines....

Group Policy Editor or Local Security Policy
Will either of these allow me to restrict drive access to a single user only? I've tried to restrict drive access with Group Policy Editor but it applies the restriction globally--even to me the administrator. Could anyone let me know if this is possible and how to do it? Much thanks.
