I am setting up a system with a restricted Group Policy. I have the following questions/problems. I have redirected the users start menu to my own folder

1. I dont want the users quick launch bar to be populated. Can I prevent this

2. When the user first logs into the system they get a copy of accessories and Internet explorer copied into there programs folder. Can I prevent this. I think its coming from the Default User

3. In my start menu I have folders which contain links to programs. The folders are supposed to appear at the top of the start menu

eg

First Folder --->  Link 1
                   Link 2
Second Folder ---> Link 1
---------------------------
Programs
Settings
---------------------------
Logoff

I dont get the First Folder/Second Folder. If I copy a link into the start menu, it does appear correctly.

eg
Link
-------------------
Programs
Settings
-------------------
Logoff

Any Ideas

1) I would set up the default user so that you do not get any extra programs.
