    Start menu redirection problems.

    HI
    I have been given the task of rolling out windows 7 to a college network.
    I have had some problems with redirecting the start menu to a network share.
    The current problem is that whatever icon (for a program) is place into the network folder, two icons turn up on the “all programs” tab.
    Any ideas.
    Alan.

    I think that it could be something within the users profile, as if i use a new test user it seems to work ok.
    I will keep investigating and let you know if i find something.

    Im using local profiles in this deployment and it seems to happen on every fresh machine I goto. I even clear the appdata etc just to be sure.

    I am going to try it with a completely new user though see if it makes any difference!

    Thanks for your reply
