Remove DOS prompt from NT workstations

By KHart ·
I am in a complete NT environment, using roaming profiles and policies. I want to easily remove the DOS prompt from everyone's start bar, but do not want to travel around to the desktops. What's the easiest way I can delete the MS-Dos prompt shortcuts(or cmd.exe file) so that the users cannot access it. Thanks.

you can do this by creating a Dword valuein the registry
Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PoliciesWinOldApp]
Name: Disabled
Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value: (0 = disable, 1 = enable)
Thanx to http://registry.winguides.com/
