Group Policy And Folder Redirection
I have set up a new OU with our active directory and set up some test users. i am setting up a group policy for folder redirection for start menu and desktop now once this is applied i go into the folders for start menu and put some shortcuts in there and i also do the same for desktop. Now when i login them shortcuts are not there but the default icons on the desktop are. So i decided that in server 2008 you can just put desktop shortcuts in and start menu shortcuts on group policy so i have also tried this and i still get the default icons plus my shortcuts. Why is this not just showing the shortcuts i am putting there and nothing else? I used to do this in server 2003 and it worked correctly.

There are a few more group policy options you can enable such as removing common items from the start menu that will help.
Also check the permissions for the share.

We had a windows update cuase this. Try this reg file, it fixed it for us.
