Guys I wonder if anyone can help. It sounds easy but I am having a major pain with this.
Simply I have a puccka GPO structure with Staff/Pupils/Office, Windows 7/Windows XP wmi filtering etc and everything works great fro the Windows 7 computers, XP computers, XP Laptops etc, etc in school/out of school.
We use redirected Start menu's etc
Only issue is that I have 1/2 dozen laptops that I want to get every GPO when the user logs on in school/home the same ( which is working ) except I don't want redirected start menu's to just these laptops.
Simply because these laptops only have around 10 pieces of software installed.
Is there any way that I can stop redirected start menu's on these 1/2 dozen laptops ?
Any help would be grateful

Do the laptops start with the same name? You could make a WMI that applies to all devices but not device begging with "ltop" for example.

Or if they're the same model of laptop, a WMI filter on something common to them.
You could also add every other device to a security group and filter the redirected start menu to only apply to them, but that's not as neat - unfortunately you can't use GPO security filtering to set a Deny.

I could not get this to work so it's a bit messy but quite simply I created another redirected Folder shortcut ( in the redirected start menu for staff ) call Laptops and placed the 10 pieces of software in this.
Teachers happy and I can until they all get rebuilt with all the same software live with this for now :-)
