Can't you just remove them from the package?

Do you need to lanuch the setup.exe, cant you just install the MSI?

If not...

----
Dim FSO, aFile

set FSO=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
set aFile=fso.GetFile("C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\YourIcon.lnk")
aFile.Delete
----

You might have to add a while loop a so the vbs doesnt try and remove the icon before its been created. I have a Wise script to do that as my VB is pants. Let me know if you want it.

Hi cygan,
log the install and look which custom action writes the SC's. After that, generate a transform, in which you disable that particular CA.
