I am having a problem where all of my users in the local office who run Citrix Desktop are suddenly getting all of their Citrix Desktop Icons on their local computer. I need to be able to keep them seperate as so of the programs / files are run off their local desktop and not Citrix.

Prior to this happening when a user logged into their computer they would see whatever Icons / Programs / Files we had put on their local computer for them to use one of them being a Shortcut to the Citrix Desktop that has a standardized desktop for all of our Citrix users. These Icons are completely different then the ones on the local desktop.

After the problem started happening the Citrix Desktop is being pushed down to the local client computer when they login to the domain replacing what was on the local desktop. Most of the desktops are running Windows XP Pro with a couple of Windows 2000 Pro machines still out there.

Any Ideas where to start with this would be greatly appreciated.

This is configurable under the properties of the published app. You can find it under "Program Neighborhood settings" "Add icon to user desktop" (at leat its there for PS 4.0).

I finally got the answer from a friend who works with Citrix every day. He told me to put the user under the standard Users Group and have them as a Member of the Group that has the Desktop redirection.

He told me that what this does is allow the "local" user to use the "local" PC's Desktop and when they logged into Citrix the Redirected Desktop would be used.

Thanks for the suggestions.
