To remove Help from the Windows 2000 Start menu, use Regedt32 to navigate to:

On the Edit menu, Add Value name NoSMHelp as a REG_DWORD data type. Set the data value to 1.

Log off and log on for the setting to take effect.

NOTE: If you subsequently set the data value to 0, Help appears without the need to logoff.
