Restrict Control Panel icons in Windows 7

Today I created a policy for showing only allowed icons in the Control Panel for a customer on a Windows 7 desktop platform.

To be able to hide the icons I used the following policy:
User configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Show only specified Control Panel items
For what name to use in the GPO setting use the table below:
