Win7 User Config Issues
Thought I'd add to the how do I configure Win7 Issues.
I have three problems as far as I can see:
1: How do I hide the network without hacking the registry. Not massively keen on that idea unless I have too. is there a GP?
2: When I log as a student in I seem to have a "student" icon, a libaries icon and a "Control Panel Icon". How do I stop the latter two appearing?
3: When I click on the "Student" icon it brings up a number of folders. These seem to be a merge of the students network locations and local ones. For examply I have a "Pictures" folder looking at c:\users\student\pictures and a "My Pictures" looking at h:\my pictures. How do I stop the local ones appearing?
There are several threads on this - but a comprehensive one covering your points can be found in the Windows 7 forum as a sticky. Note that this won't hide these locations within Office though.
Having been throug that thread I'm still having issues...
3: Deleting the "desktop.ini" as per the instruction in the re-directed folders seems to make no difference. When I enabled the GPO (@GATT's post) it hid half the icons, unfortunately the re-directed half so user's couldn't access their documents. IT also seems to break my re-directed start menu.
2: Enabling the GPO (from point 3) did get rid of my unwanted desktop icons but had the other side effect that means I can't use it.
1: Had a quick look at the ADM however I was wondering if it's possible to apply it to the user rather than the machine (can I just change the class??) as I'd quite like those settings to be there when I log in!
I have used windows 7 once and I encountered some critical issues so what I did was go back from XP T_T
Yeah, by the looks of the the critical issue was between keyboard and chair ;-)

3 & 2. In your redirection check if you have compatible with Windows XP etc set, if so Documents will redirect as My Documents etc, which may be causing some of your problems.
