      I am trying to set up a user with Terminal Services access to a
Windows 2000 server (with SP4) that
      1) Could not see shortcuts under \Documents and Settings\All
      2) Could not see shortcuts under Could not see shortcuts under
\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu

      (Preferably, it would be nice if the desintation to those shortcuts
could be made inacccessible, too!, but hiding it would be good enough for

      How could this be best achieved?

      I have tried the following, which is not good enough
      - Change the ACL to the short cuts, to deny access to that user----
results: user could see the shortcut but could not double click it
      - As above, but also make change the ACL of the desktop folder
removing all rights to the user---- results: when user logs in, he/she gets
an error saying All Users\Desktop "Access is denied"
