I am trying to sort out a new desktop for the windows 7 clients and while I have managed to get the icons that I want on the desktop and all the other restrictions in place I require I seem to have inherited some icon that are not required,
i.e. control panel, libraries and users folder is there an option via GPO I can get rid of these other than that everything is ticker-t-boo.
Try checking the "Public desktop" folder under public user in the users folder. You will need to enable hidden folders view to see the folder. Check to see if these shortcuts are in that folder.

There are other settings in other places you might want to take a look at, such as "Control Panel" and Start Menu and "Taskbar".
