I recently installed a payroll program on a Terminal Server and all the users now have the shorrtcut icon on their desktops when they login through RDC. I want to remove the icon from  all the users' profiles and only have it available for two specific users (accounting dept). Please tell me how I could accomplish this.

The easiest way would be to delete it from C:\Users\Public\Desktop folder and add it to the specific users folder C:\Users\%Username%\Desktop.

That way your every day users won't see the icon.
