    PC not loading student profile correctly

    One PC - windows 7.

    When students log on, it doesn't display the desktop icons correctly, no office for example, also not on the start menu.

    Have deleted profiles, no change - also checked WMI and that is showing as consistent.

    Any clues?

    (Just checked staff profiles and that is the same problem.)

    No I can still connect to the PC remotely, so it is on the network.

    Is it in the correct OU in AD?

    Yes it is in the correct group with the same member permissions as other PCs in the room. The office package works, when opened from a file within the students documents, but isn't showing on the start menu, in fact there is barely anything on the start menu or desktop.

    Take it off the domain and put it back on again, if that doesn't work reinstall it, sometimes these issues will take a lot longer to fix than a re-image.
