I have redirected the start menu with group policy.  It sort of works.  The applications are nowing coming strat off the start menu and not from the programs menu as I expected.  The path I gave used to redirect is \\servername\redirect$\startmenu\programs.  I have shared the redirect folder.  The correct group of users has Read access tothe Redirect folder and all the way down the structure.

I have presently enabled Remove Common Program groups. Even if I don't have this setting on it still does not work.  Any ideas what is wrong.  Have I missed something
