Windows Explorer menu's etc when publishing on Server 2008 Terminal Server

Posted on 2010-01-08

have published windows explorer seamless app through citrix xenapp on a windows 2008 server. Have attached screenshots. Have a number of loopback group policy settings to restrict the UI and access. However, am unhappy with having to display all the users profile folders in the left pane (my docs, etc are redirected). Also, can't see how to remove the 'network' icon. When clicking on this it also gives a 'search active directory' box....i do not want users to be able to view all active directory objects (accounts, etc). Ideally i would like the display to be like windows 2003....much less confusing for the user if windows explorer just displays my docs and mapped drive(s).
Any ideas how to achieve this through group policy? Is it possible to switch to a more 'XP' rather than 'Vista' UI for explorer? I have enabled and disabled countless GP settings but can't seem to achieve what i want to do

Help appreciated!
