    Remove files from Desktop

    Is there a way I could auto remove spurious files i.e. files members of staff have dropped on the desktop that should not be therewith a script. We have a redirected desktop, so it would need to remove the files before the desktop files are loaded I presume, so where in GPO would I need to apply the script.

    Make the redirected desktop area read only?

    We have redirection on desktops, that then applies to the persons storage quota. They can make their desktops as messy as they like

    The files are not in the redirected desktop but on the PC desktop. Happened when the network was down during summer and at the beggining of term when PCs logged on locally as the domain was not available so they saved odd files to the desktop! Now just want an easy way to tidy things up. Things were alright with redirected desktop before the summer.
