Saving Icons on the Desktop in NT 4.0

By thomasle ·
We have multiple users who can not save their icons in their desired locations on their desktop. We use roaming profiles.
I do not have mandatory profiles or anything in place in the system policy editor. Users can log on to another PC and make changes to their desktop profile, log off, log back in and it will save! The issue is more of a local PC issue, I think? Any registry tips?

Make sure that each account has the correct profile directory listed. Check the Event Manager and make sure all services are running correctly.

If the issue is that they can create icons but on some PCs but their icons are not saved for the next session; they must be writing to a different profile somewhere. Check for multiple profile subdirectories on the local 'problem' PCs and the domain controller. If a customer (JUSER) logs locally onto an NT computer and has the same account name (JUSER) in the domain database, two profile directories (JUSER & JUSER000) will be created. If so; the link http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q156/6/95.asp details how to determine which profile is mapped to the local user and which is mapped to the domain user so you could correct the profile path in the domain user account properties.
