my documents renamed in windows 7
Right i Thought i had cracked this problem, but unfortunately not, when users login the system edits there desktop.ini file which then displays their username as My Documents, Any quick fixes i know what i need to do i need to restrict write access to desktop.ini, but not sure if there is s script that can help with this?

you can use file server resource manager (its built in but not turned on from server 03r2 (possibly r1 but cant remember) and just block the creation of any file in say d:\users (or wherever you keep you users files) so you can stop people making a file called desktop.ini it just wont allow it even as admin

There are lots of fixes on here if you do a search.

I think XP needs the desktop.ini file so depands whether you are running a mixed environment with win 7 and XP

Navigate to the folder where your home directories are located. Right click in the column 'Size' > 'More...'
Select 'Filename' in the list, then click OK. The username will now be displayed

this will change the default folder view for all your folders
1. Open a folder and make changes as you like.
2. Press Alt to display the menu bar. Click Tools -> Folder options.
3. Click View tab.
4. Press the "Apply to folders" button.
5. Click Apply and click OK.

The above also works on Windows Vista\Server 2008 first release.

Does anyone know if this can be set through group policy as the default view?
