Prevent Users from Removing Startup Folder Items

We're running SBS 2011 and have corporate software that needs to load upon startup.  We have one user who keeps taking the corporate software shortcuts out of the startup folder.  Is there a GPO that will prevent a user from removing those shortcuts?  Or any other ideas on how to take care of this?

Thanks!

You could change the security permissions on the shortcut to read and execute.  That way he won't be able to delete it.

just make a GPO to add the shortcut at every login.

Thanks Scorpeo but I'm really looking for a GPO to do this.  So, donnk, it sounds like that's just what I need.  Will try it out this weekend.
