There is an old Win9x registry tip which should work fine for XP

Start Regedit
Search for Desktop
This should bring you to HKey_Classes_Root \ Directory
Expand this section
Under Shell is Find
Delete Find

Move down a little in the Registry to Folder
Expand this section and remove Explore and Open

There may be other things you want to delete as well.
It might also be a good idea to export the two sections first just in case you delete more than you want.

You can also search the registry for the text string of what you want to remove.

This works in 98. I haven't tried it on XP yet.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Create a DWORD. Name it
NoChangeStartMenu Modify and assign a value data of 1.

It is Win2000. Under a profile I want to disable right click functions if a user tries to right click on say, Start,documents. I would like to restrict the right click functions on a document there

Right!

Did you already try anything we've been suggesting?

Mosaic1's tweak sounds promising, among others.

I have tried Mosaic 1 and TonyKleins, neither of them seemed to work. I will try some others
