    Group Policy Shortcut Icons Disappearing

    Good morning all

    We use Group Policys to push out shortcuts to users laptops - They are generally URL shortcuts on the desktop and we specify the icon to be used.
    Every so often a staff member will come to us and say that the icons have disappeared (the shortcuts are still there, but the icon has reset - picture attached).
    I assume it's because their laptop attempted to refresh the icons while they were at home, couldn't connect to our server where the icons are stored and used a blank icon, however, when they are connected to the network, no amount of F5'ing or restarting will get those icons to come back. Having said that, they will suddenly reappear a few days later.
    Does anybody have any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Deploy the icons you need to the c:\ via a startup script or GPP. Then point the shortcut icon to that local folder

    Thanks for the suggestion deano. It might be worth a try, pity to have to store the icons locally as this is only a problem on a handful of laptops, the other 150+ PCs don't have any problems with the icons being stored on the network.
