I'm creating a number of desktop shortcuts using group policy preferences. How can I display the 'My Computer' icon on all users desktops by default?

I believe you can do a reg hack

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]

"{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000

I think that's the correct one
