Hi ciandirrane:

Your looking at the differences between Apples, Oranges, and Pears:

Desktop Icons:
Not quite sure what you want to do with these icons, can you specify for me? Do you want these users not to delete these Icons? Do you want them to have a default desktop?

Default printer:
This is usually best done with a logon script:
I avoid scripting like the plague, so it will be a good idea if we get some help on this. Once we get to the root of exactly what you want to do for all three tasks, I can get us some scripting help for us.

Access to shares:
This is done on the share itself. Going to the share and setting the NTFS permissions and Share permissions will prevent them from accessing the shares. If you don't want them to see the shares, we can involk Access Based Enumeration. ABE may be a little more advanced than you might want to go at this time and I find that preventing access to the shares is good in most all cases.

Go to the command prompt and type of the DC:
GPupdate /force

Does that enforce your group policy to those computers?

I think using Loopback Processing will do the trick for you, it is near the bottom
