Hi,

I work at a school where the students continuously delete desktop shortcuts to applications residing on the server.  I have tried through group policy to lock the desktop down but STILL the girls are able to delete the items and they don't reappear when the girls log back on.  I am even thinking of going along the route of blocking emptying the recycle bin, so the teachers can just restore the deleted shortcuts if need be.

What am I doing wrong?  How do I set up a standard desktop for each pupil.  They only have one shared login so this would be the easiest option.  I feel like I have exhausted all the options for locking the desktop and everything that should be enabled or disabled already is.  Help!

Many Thanks,
Emma.

Emmy, if you use XP or Win 2000 as a desktop os,  create a mandatory roaming user profile for the students user name. This profile can't be overwritten and will be restored to the students machine, each time a user logs in.

I think this article gives a nice overview: http://www.enterprisenetworkingplanet.com/netos/article.php/625291
