Windows 2008 R2 Group Policy Issue

Trying to setup a new Windows 2008 R2 terminal server, having an issue with group policy.

What I want to do is have shortcuts applied to the desktop through group policy then lock the desktop so they can't add their own shortcuts and files to it. I can get the first part to work fine but just can't work out how to lock the desktop, tried folder redirection but that then empties the desktop on me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello !

If I remember correctly, you can create a Security Policy that removes the right to modify/create for "Authenticated User" to %UserProfile%\Desktop.
