[wp-hackers] Possible to deactivate Dashboard-Widgets?

I have a lot of users and they don't need to see all the WordPress development stuff in the dashboard, so i'm simply hiding them with a little css that's in an admin_head action:

This is global for all users and doesn't mess with their user_meta options. This will also remove the help and options expandable menus in the dashboard since my users need to come to me instead of to the WordPress forums for help.

	.versions{display:none !important;}

Hope this helps.

this is the code to add the meta box in dashboard:
wp_add_dashboard_widget( 'dashboard_quick_press', __( 'QuickPress' ),
'wp_dashboard_quick_press' );

and in the function wp_add_dashboard_widge was used the function add_meta_box
add_meta_box( $widget_id, $widget_name , $callback, 'dashboard',
$location, 'core' );

now i have write a small test in a plugin:
function mytest() {
	remove_meta_box('dashboard_quick_press', 'dashboard', 'core');

add_action( 'admin_menu', 'mytest' );

Thanks, works now, i have test with the false id :(
Best wishes and thank you
