stop e-mail startmenu item appearing on new user accounts


Recommended Posts

When creating an image for deployment I like to apply settings to the "default user" registry. This means when a new user account is created these settings will apply to the new user. In particular I would like to remove the E-mail startmenu entry that gets created on first login. Unfortunately reg editing the registry path for default user does not apply on new user account.

I can run a reg script (below) after the user has logged in which removes the E-mail startmenu item. However if anyone happens to know a way to stop this happening in the first place please share.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Cached]
