    Terminal services - Policy problems

    When a users Creates a new profile on a terminal server, the internet defaults its home page to msn! even though its been set up to our own intranet page

    also when people are logged on they get the internet security configuration pop up even though its turned off!!how do i turn it off

    the users explorer icon is also being replaced with a no add ons shortcut.

    how can i solve these problems

    Do i login as default user and set there homepage to our intranet?

    many thanks

    Are other policies you've set being applied? It would indicate policies are not being applied if no.

    I would use the results wizard in the GPMC to see if any of your policies aren't being applied properly.

    Let me see if i can explain better. We are running terminal server and users profiles were not being deleted, and was taking up disc space. So we set it up that after they logged off it would delete the profile.

    so when they log on its like they get a new profile. Desktop Authority Seems to be working fine and that loads everything up, but then the internet explorer then loads the default user setting and wipes there internet settings (homepage etc)

    how can i set it up so that explorer isnt setting up the default policy and wiping the setting?

    Which version of IE is on the TS?

    If it is IE7, have you downloaded the IE7 ADM file into Group Policy as the standard GP in Server 2003 that controls Internet Explorer doesn't work with IE7.

    You would have to re-direct the application data for the users if you want their IE settings not to be wiped. Alternatively, add the required settings into the default user profile on the terminal server.
