Failed to apply folder redirection for Desktop and Start Menus Suddenly
OK so this problem has been driving me mad for a few weeks!
Recently we keep getting students logging on without a desktop or start menu. The event log says "failed to apply policy and attempt to redirect "Desktop" to...
I can fix the problem by deleting their local profile and then deleting some registry keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\FolderDescriptions\ but have no idea what that is actually doing :/
So what's causing the problem in the first place? and how do I fix it globally instead of on each machine? I've been messing with reg files and group policy for hours with no success!
