I have a Windows 2003 server and a mix of Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Pro clients.  I wish to place a shortcut on the desktop anytime a staff member logs into a domain machine, so they can create trouble tickets.  What do I need to do to configure the domain controller to do this?

    You could create a Group Policy which copies the file on startup to the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Deskop folder and target to OU where machine objects sit

    Can you provide more detailed directions on how to do this.  Also if we did it that way and say a teacher logs onto a student computer, then the student logs back on, wouldn't the shortcut still be there?  Idealy it will only appear when a staff member logs in.

    I'm leaving for the day.  I'll have to come back and try again another day.
