Windows 2008 and XP clients. Group Policy is set up to point to the homepage and 'prevent performance of first run........' However, when clients logon, although the homepage appears ok, the google toolbar runs first asking 'set google as my homepage'. Is there anyway to disable this without having to remove google toolbar?

Not through group policy as it's a Google product causing the pop up request. Do the users need the Google toolbar?
There may be a registry key you can deploy via logon scripts though, I'll have a look.
