Windows 7 wireless clients no desktop icons after login.
Can not figure this one out for the life of me.
Windows 7 Pro 32bit netbook clients. When a user logs in they (80% of the time) have no desktop icons. I first chalked this down to spotty wifi but a few things lead me to believe the wifi isn't at fault..
- I have the desktops assigned per user and they work every time if the clients are connected via an ethernet cable.
- Even though they have no desktops the assigned drives are still there and work fine, no drop outs. same for internet.
- If the icons do appear they can either be 100% fine or greyed out with a small cross on them. (offline files?)
- Refreshing does nothing.
- 'Show Desktop Icons' is enabled on the clients desktop context menu
Is it worth assigning a network drive to the 'desktop' folder on the network and then just changing policy so that desktops are loaded from Z:\ or whatever? the network drives never seem to be offline so this may be an easy fix - but surely the behaviour they are showing isn't normal?
Thanks for any insight.
