I am setting a mandatory user profile for Remote Desktop users, and I am wandering what is better performance vise - to lock  Start Menu stuff with GPO, or to model the User Profile, and then lock changes it via GPO (less GPO rules).

Thanks.

Redirect the start menu to a read only folder.  You do this with folder redirection in group policy.
