Terminal Server profile locked

We run MYOB via a Terminal Server, I had the RDP icon configured to auto start MYOB once the user logged in and all was ok.  Last week I upgraded to the latest MYOB version and changed the RDP link details to reflect the new folder but when they logged in it opened the old version, double checked settings and all was okay. If I log in as a completely new user everything is okay.  Even if I do a std remote connection to the TS using the old user where you normally expect to get a Desktop screen it still opens the previous MYOB. I have removed all temp files, even removed the users profile on the TS yet when the try logging in and the TS creates a new profile it still opens the old MYOB. THis problem ocurs with all users that had previoulsy logged in and used the old MYOB, it is like something has a permanent link somewhere saying that when ever these users log in irrespective of the manner/how they log in their profile should always opened this particular MYOB file. Anyone have any clues please?

Sounds like a group policy issue check to see if there is an OU that has a policy attached forcing the old MYOB to start.

This was not the solution, however whilst checking G/Polices I then spent time check several other options which I had not even considered as related and found that when I first set up TS I had configured the users AD accounts (Enviroment)with specific startup info related to MYOB. I subsequently used a RDP icon configuration to allow the user to connect and thats what I continued to use but of course forgetting that I had a AD config and that it would over-ride the local RDP config. SO the answer was not right but it contributed to me looking in the right area.
