JSI Tip 9646. How can I prevent the All Users Start menu items from appearing in a user's Start menu?

The All Programs, and Programs, menu contains items from the All Users profile AND items from the user's profile.

To prevent items from the All Users profile being included, implement the Remove common program groups from Start Menu policy at User Configuration / Administrative Templates / Start Menu and Taskbar.

If the policy is Not defined, you can implement this restriction by setting the NoCommonGroups Value Name, a REG_DWORD data type, to 1.
