    Desktop Shorcuts need refresh

    Sorry if this has been asked before but I promise I have searched

    Basically my problem is that when users log on they regularly dont have the desktop shortcuts load. Although after refreshing the desktop all icons show immediately.

    There seems to be no logic as to when this happens, e.g all workstations, all profiles....just random. The only thing I can notice is that when the icons dont show the profile is usually a tad slower to load.

    We are using folder redirection for desktop, the workstations are xp and the server is 2k3 using roaming profiles.

    Cheers in advance for any help

    I occasionally get this. I allow staff to right click the desktop and choose Refresh, however pupils are required to logoff and log back on.

    Using the F5 key should also trigger a refresh without needing to enable any extra menus. Have you tried rebuilding teh icon cache on the affected machines with the TweakUI powertoy?
