    Group Policy Issue

    Hi Guys,

    I am writing the policy for the 'Student UserType' The problem I am having is that My Computer has disappeared from the start menu. I have removed the policy and logged back on and it isn't back... Grrr!.

    I know its the policy but I can find it anywhere, attached is the report of the policy, if someone can shed some light on the issue, maybe a new set of eyes is needed.


    Thanks
    - Stuart

    Right, if you have set it to show again and it still isnt it might be stored in the profile. If you delete to profile then recreate it then it should sort it.

    PS: you should use the classic start menu as im sure there is a hole to get into the folder structure of the "new type" start menu in XP.

    Remove My Computer icon on the desktop - Enabled

    User Configuration - Administrative Templates - Desktop

    As its a user policy a log off then back on should fix it.

    He said start menu not desktop. I believe there is another setting for the Start menu one

    The policy for My Computer in the start menu is located at
    User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Start Menu and Taskbar \ Policy:Remove My Computer from the Start Menu
    You can also do an rsop.msc from the run line to see if it is or is not being applied. Or do a
    Code:
    gpresult
    from the command line to see if perhaps it's being applied from another group policy.

    Depending if the group policy is set for the PCs or the actual user groups. You might need to enable the Loopback policy which is located
    Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ System \ Group Policy \ Policy: Loopback Policy : Enable

    Lastly, try this command from the command line to force the group policy to update.
    Code:
    gpupdate /force

    Hi Guys,
