I am deploying Windows 7 and have so far managed to set the default desktop wallpaper, start menu items, screen saver, and internet explorer settings for new users logging in to the computer, using a combination of group policies, registry changes, and editing the default profile start menu.

One change I cannot figure out though is the default shortcuts pinned to the taskbar.  Current new users get shortcuts for internet explorer, windows exploter, and windows media player.  How can I change this to show internet explorer and outlook 2003 only, when a new user logs in.

I was looking for the same a while back and I found you could do it programatically or via GPO(might not work) by importing to registry.  I haven't had time to test either so please let me know if either work.

Programtically:
