I have Windows Server 2003 installed on a server, which is part of a network of multiple PCs with XP installed on them.

Now when ever I logon to the domain via the server or a PC and go to start>programs, all the usernames of users on the domain are displayed at the top of the list. I have realised that it is the subfolders of the folder 'Profile' on the server that is displayed here but don't know how to stop the subfolders from displaying in the program list.

Please advise.

Sounds like you've enabled roaming profiles incorrectly.  You generally don't need to use roaming profiles in an SBS enviornment.

Who installed and configured this server?

Thanks Jeff, much appreciated.

A setting under Windows Settings>Folder Redirection>Start Menu of the 'Default Domain Policy' was set incorrectly.
