Normally users are able to right-click on the Start Menu and modify it using the context menu. This option give you the ability to disable this function.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new DWORD value named "NoChangeStartMenu", and set the new value to equal "1" to enable the restriction or "0" to disable the restriction.
Note: This restriction can be used either on a user by user basis by adding it to HKEY_CURRENT_USER or on a computer wide basis by adding it to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
Value Name: NoChangeStartMenu
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data: (0 = disable restriction, 1 = enable restriction)
