I'm using GPP to allocate shortcuts on computer startup to the all users directory on the local computer. These are getting allocated fine, however, students and staff can't see the shortcuts until after an admin has logged on to the machine. Then, when a student/staff member logs on the shortcuts from the All Users location are available.

I've tested by stripping away the GPO for the staff/student users but it still happens like this - perhaps a permissions thing? I've also tried disabling software restriction policies but still no joy.

Any ideas? I will literally try anything.
