GPP Shortcuts and Start Menus
I have created a blank share for a test user and then pointed to it through GP for the start menu. I have then applied a number of shortcuts for different programs and then logged onto a computer. Upon logging on, i have noticed that no shortcuts have been mapped. Thinking this was permissions related, i have given the user full control to the share and then tried another logon. This time is a success and the user gets the correct start menu icons. Problem is that the icons are left in the share when the user logs off and follows the user to each computer.
How do you deploy your shortcuts using GPP? I basically want a blank start menu apart from the icons i publish through GPP!

If you redirect the startmenu to their local profile then it'll be created blank. Then you can use GPP to create their shortcuts. BUT if you're not using Man profiles it'll stick with those shortcut on that machine forever (or until you delete them)

Do you want the users to have customised Start Menus? If not then just redirect Start Menus to a read-only location, job done

I just basically want to tidy up the start menus as we currently use a single redirected menu. I have tried read only access, but the GPP shortcuts do not show and an error is given in event viewer with "Group Policy object did not apply because it failed with error code '0x80070002 The system cannot find the file specified.'"
