Thank you for your post.
Yes, you can create a startup script that Hides and Locks the Status Bar based on Privileges.
Assuming the Account Name "Minimum" is also set for Minimum privileges, you can create a startup script with the following commands:
If [ Get ( AccountName ) = "Minimum" ]
Show/Hide Status Area [ Lock ; Hide ]
Also check the option "Run script with full access privileges".
Now, when the user "Minimum" accesses the file, the Status Bar will be hidden and locked (so they cannot not show it).
