We currently use Tricerat Simplify Suite which for many years has been great software.  Recently their updates have caused me many days of problems.

What I need is to control what goes on the users Citrix desktops and control how their printers are deployed.

In addition to Citrix policies you can also use AD Group Policies. If you elaborate more on your requirements, we will be able to provide you with more help.

Well, as sarmahjay pointed out, on Citrix you can use the Citrix policies to control what the users can access:
1. what printers will show
2. what drivers to use
3. what drives will be redirected

and a lot of other options...

You can also combine it with Windows group policies to hide icons from the desktop, hide controls like 'shutdown' and hide icons from the start menu, and more...

Did I understand you correctly?
