    found it !

    Enable "Remove run menu from start menu" (User configuration > administrative templates > start menu and Taskbar).

    Thanks to EFLA...

        I would like to point out that the remove run from taskbar does not stop you browsing other computers, as you can do that from Windows Explorer, IE, Firefox, Notepad, MS word...

        Anywhere program that can save a file can browse other peoples computers, you need to remove the share permissions.

        What type of permissions does he need? If its just internet access, just do not give him and domain priv and he should be able to touch anything.

        Also, it seems abit strange that you will be connecting his computer to your domain (so the GPO is deployed) and then removing all domain access.

        If in asking for more details about a problem I seem to be rude, think about it this way, If I did not have to ask, I would not of been forced to be rude.

        Please assume anything and everything I say to be wrong unless I have provided links and evidence, or you have done the same.

        A OP is bad if I can go to and answer the question by pressing 4 buttons. "Ctrl +c, Ctrl +v".
