Two Group Policies to Stop Server Manager in Longhorn

Although I really like what Microsoft has done with Server Manager in Windows Server Longhorn, it gets rather annoying having it pop up every time I log on.  I”m sure there are easier ways to stop this but being a Directory Services MVP I thought it would be best to calm this down with a Group Policy…or two.  Enjoy:
