I currently have a windows 2008 server standard edition and have recently decided to load the terminal server role to it.  My question is how do i configure terminal server so that when any of my 5 users try to connect they get the exact application that they need and their user profile stays so the next time they log in its all still configured the way they want it.  So from one of the XP machines I have on the my network I used remote desktop which i think is how you access a terminal service client session, and ran into the allow log on through terminal services right problem.  I corrected this by adding the terminal server user group that i created with the 5 users i needed to have access.  Now when i logged in with one of those users get a new desktop, one of the server and i get a couple of apps that were already on the server.  But i can still see administrative tools and server stuff that i don't what the users to see.  How to I get rid of that stuff.  And is this the correct way to log the client xp machines into the terminal sessions?
