Can you stop desktop icons form appearing using Unattend.xml answer file
Posted on 2011-09-25
We have created an unattend.xml file for Windows 7 32 bit. Everything works fine, but I have one issue that just irritates me. The answer file joins the computer to the domain and when the computer reboots it comes to the login screen for the domain. When you login you get all the settings from the default profile and you get a bunch of icons on the desktop that weren't part of the Default Profile. I get Network, Control Panel, LIbraries and My Documents. It aggrivates me. Is there a way to stop this behavior in the unattend.xml file or some other way? I don't want to do it with a GPO because I want people to be able to add them if they like. I just don't want them populated from the start.
