I have a windows 2003 terminal server. It had office 2007 on it. I ran the upgraded for 2010.
Every new profile created when a user logins shows the icons for office 2007 shortcuts. I can't seem to find how to remove the shortcuts from appearing even after I delete them. The come back every time.

Take a look in the profile for All Users, I'll bet that's where those icons live.  Everything in there is applied IN ADDITION to what is in the user's profile.

I looked in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop
They are the icons I want. Office 2007 icons are not showing in that location automatically add every time.

The icons were being add automatically. I found the problem. There was a shortcuts.cmd
example:
copy /y \\servername\TSUD\Shortcuts\*.* "c:\Documents and Settings\%usermane%\Desktop

Once I found the location I was able to remove the icons from automatically reinserting every time I logged in.
