    Will try that tomorrow - I wondered if it is some sort of setting somewhere that blocks links to webpages? Could that be it?

    Update:
    There was a setting blocking webpage links somewhere - don't ask me where now - one of my beloved support network sorted it out for me.
    So the links are fine on the student desktop but still not appearing on staff desktop even though my server is set up with redirected folders containing staff and student desktop folders.
    In server 2008 I know how to do the staff shortcut by group policy but not sure how to do it in 2003 as no preferences. Can anyone enlighten me

    It sounds like the setting that was removed was in more than one place i.e. the gpo for student users and the gpo for staff users and that it was only removed from the student gpo.

    What i suggest is what is different for students and staff. If student accounts work then their must be something you done different for the staff.

    On a related issue - I am trying to get a desktop shortcut for some locally installed software on some of the Win 7 netbooks. I know I have to show hidden folders etc to get to the 'public desktop' folder but although I have set it to show everything the folder is not there.
    Can anyone help?
