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.
