XP desktop icon pictures don't work for all users

By WorkForFood ·
I work in an environment where many users share XP Pro PC's with their own login accounts. Our standard desktop calls for shortcuts to several server-based apps. After I install shortcuts to the All Users desktop, logged in with administrative rights, the icon pictures don't work for all users (the icon appears dead), even though the shortcut works fine. I've always considered this a very annoying XP bug, but has anyone ever dealt with this and come up with any solution? If I give users admin rights, they can edit properties and change the icon to the correct picture, but this is not an acceptable solution!
