You can run Group Policy: under user configuration; start menu & taskbar; enable "Remove Help menu from Start Menu"

Easy peasy...

This is a registry fix, export a copy of the registry for recovery if needed.
Although this is a straight forward and easy step, it is not recommended that you modify the registry unless you are familiar with it yada, yada, blah, blah blah.

1) Click START>RUN and type 'regedit' to open registy editor.
2)Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
3)Right-click an open area in the right pane and select NEW>DWORD Value
4) Name it NoSMHelp
5) Double click the new entry and give it a value of 1
6) restart windows, HELP is gone from START menu.

Please post a comment telling why in the world someone would want to do this. Are your users wasting too much time reading help files when they could just as easily be wasting the Help Desk's time?

Go to Start -> Run, and run gpedit.msc.

Navigate to User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Start Menu
and activate "Remove Help from the start menu."
