Windows 7: Group Policy....


16 Sep 2009   #1

 
Group Policy....

At work, the domain I am in creates an icon on my desktop every time I log in.

It's REALLY ANNOYING, especially as it's for the can't-help-with-that desk, who I never use.

Turns out this is created by group policy.

I have asked for them to modify my user so it does not get created, but as I don't have admin rights on this particular domain server, as a fallback, I'm looking to see if I can't mess with the policy on my desktop - or at least block it from creating the damn icon... any clues form anyone as to how, would be most welcome!!!!

I was only asking them not to have the annoying icon created on my desktop each time I log in, not preventing GP from working....
