    Well from 2003 (which is where I was) yes but there isn't many R2 / Win 7 ones really when you look at the overall picture of them if you get what I mean

    I would like to see a search facility in the group policy manager. That would make life more simple.

    An option to manage pinned start menu items!
    And btw I think they have changed it again in Windows 7!
    No sign of anythign in the registry path that I previously used in Vista, and if you go to C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Inte rnet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\StartMenu\ you find shortcuts of the pinned programs but nothing about the order you pinned them in!

    You can filter now, i.e "only show all policy relating to Internet explorer/Windows XP"
