How can I change the icons (more option) from detail to large icons for a mandatory user

We have changed out PC's from WXp to W7 64 bit and the server from 2003 to 2008 R2 Standard SP1 64-bit OS

We have set up mandatory profiles for users to log on.
Seven folders have been created on the desktop.
When each folder is opened the icons are displayed showing the details ( in more options).
I need the three folders to display large icons and the other four to display
Medium icons.

I have change the user profile from ntuser.man to ntuser.dat and made the changes.
But when I log off the user the icons reverts back to the detail format

Please advise on how to solve this problem.

Does it work as you want it BEFORE log-off? If you leave it as an ntuser.dat, at next log-on the changes are gone?

Any shutdown scripts in place, that might be cleaning the registry/profile out?

At this point, the profile being mandatory is moot, as it doesn't work as a regular profile. It is dumping the settings.... Any special apps running?

1. Shutdown scripts are attached to the OU this machine sits in, in AD.

2. Perform a clean startup to determine whether background programs are interfering with your game or program

Just uncheck the ones in the Startup Tab for now
