When I make changed to the start menu in the group policy object editor it also affects the administrators start menu too.  How do I stop this?  I only want the change to be applied to my terminal server users?  See screen shot for more information.

In User Account group, has a GPO and set this policy group for this group of User Account then It wont affect the Administrator account.  If you have this GPO under Machine group then whoever log in will have that policy apply.

It looks like you are using the local policy not a group policy - use a group policy and apply it to the terminal server (s) OU and use loopback processing.
Next make this start menu change and then you need to use filtering which would say apply to all users except X where you can define X

Create a group policy

Enable loopback processing

Filtering to prevent Administrators getting this policy applied to
