Icon appearing on desktop to user profile root on TS2008R2 Server

Hello,

Our environment:

DC
TS
User profiles redirected to fileshare on DC

When a user logs on to a TS session, they are presented with 4 icons on their desktop. The icons are %Username% (links to root of profile), Libraries, Recycle Bin and Computer.

I don't want the %Username% icon to appear. I don't want the Libraries icon to appear either, but I can most likely live with that.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Managed to figure this out in the end.

It was due to a GPO being applied. The GPO was Force Classic Start Menu. Set this GPO back to Not Configured and the problem went away.
