Hi!  Our school has 1 server (Microsoft Server 2008) and uses roaming profiles for the teachers and students.  Our problem is that, if something gets added to a profile, we can delete it, but it comes right back the next time the user logs on.

Some examples:

1.  Grades 4 - 8 logon as the same profile. Some "little gremlins" added some x-rated stuff to their start menus, which we delete all the time, but it just comes back the next time a kid logs onto that profile. 

2.  I accidently "dropped" some programs into the startup folder.  Now they start every time a kid logs on.  I can remove them, but they come right back.  Is there a way I can remove these items from the roaming profile so that they won't come back?  Thanks!!!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can delete it in the roaming profile share on your server. Also check if there are any applications on the computer that does this. It sounds like you should delete the profile folder in your roaming profile shares and setup restrictions for that profile so they can’t change anything on it.

    The folder path should be in the Active Directory properties of the user profile. Go to the profile tab.
