Have windows 7 Pro, all programs are installed locally and desktop shortcuts are placed in the public\desktop location. However, users are still able to delete the icons and sometimes the icons change as though the software is not installed even if the icon is still there. I have to copy fresh the icons to the public\desktop to get them back working again.
I'm aware using redirection may have been better but we are using notebooks and the wireless is quite slow so we have refrained from using desktop redirection.
I want to prevent users from deleting desktop icons, will this have to be done locally or through GP and if GP, how on a 2008 R2 domain ?
