  • If its empty, why bother trying to hide it? Steady State isn't able to do this, you may have to hide it through Group Policy. Type gpedit.msc in the Run box, and then under Administrative Templates from the left pane,  Start Menu and Taskbar should expand and on the right pane you will see Hide All Programs list from the Start menu. This is the path on a Vista machine and I'm assuming your image is XP, which may be slightly different.

    Hope that helps,

  • Yes, Windows SteadyState cannot remove it from Start Menu, however, you can try the solutions in the following thread:
