When my gpo is not applied, I get the icon from: ( C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop) But when I have the gpo applied I do not. What gpo setting does this?

you can run "gpresult /v" or rsop.msc from the workstation to see what policies were effective and what settings were applied.

In the GPO, under User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Start Menu and Taskbar, there is a setting called Remove common program groups from start menu. If this setting is enabled, then you won't get any thing from All users profile. If its disabled, you will get start menu and desktop settings from All users profile.
