Remove Internet Explorer X64 Icon from start menu for all users

When a users Start Menu is created, the users will get the default settings form the server wich includes the Internet Explorer X64 icon. When the users opens a the browser the default is X86 (watch this blog for more information), but I luike my Start Menu as clean as possible.

While searching the internet I found different methods to remove the IE X64 icon, but the best way for me was to delete the following registry key:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\>{26923b43-4d38-484f-9b9e-de460746276c}\StubPath

I used the GPO preferences to accomplish this.
