    Active Desktop Trouble With Student Account

    Hi Guys,

    I was wondering if anyone with some AD experiance has had any runnin's with this problem:

    OK we have hundreds of student accounts at our college and we have recently updated one of the main ICT Suites with IE7, WMP11 and all the Microsoft Updates they could have, now the students came back into college and this started to when they have logged into a single machine more than once:


    Notice the explorer type bar on the left? Carrying on the student tries to access they're My Work folder and this happens:


    I have tried disabling the wallpaper they usually have with no success, and the last thing I was thinking was the icons, but I wanted to see if anyone has any experiance with this? This does not happen to a staff account and also the student accounts are roaming profiles.

    Its really got me confused. :S Any help would be grateful!

    Thanks for the link... seems like we may have to take IE7 off the images for now. Another 2 days worth of work down the jacksie... yey!

    Managed to solve the problem, but we had to disable the college wide wallpaper.

    Will have to wait till they sort this problem with a update or something.
