We want to turn a clients PC's into Thin Clients but without using Thin Client software.

We want to use Group Policy to uninstall all programs and restrict access to - File Manager, Browsers, Search options, My Computer, Control Panel etc.

What we ultimately want is when a user log ons, they get 2 RDP icons on their desktop to Terminal Server and one for Skype plus access to log off, restart & shut down.

What would be the easiest way to do this using GP?
