Help with desktop icons in Windows XP

  1. Hiya,

    Our big flashy hotshot IT administrator is in a bit of a pickle and
    has asked me to get an answer to this problem.... He's dead
    embarrassed that he can't remember how to sort it out himself - we
    shouldn't laugh at him though, I'm at a loss myself as to how to deal
    with it....

    We are a schools IT dept and have dozens of computers with Windows
    XP, most networked from a central server, with some 200+ users, all
    with individual logins/passwords. He says that when people log on
    using their password, they are just getting a blank desktop with none
    of the usual WinXP icons (e.g. My Documents; My Computer, Recycle Bin,
    etc.) and he wants to know how to get these icons to display. It seems
    our Superman knows there's a way of doing it but he's just forgotten.
    Aww, bless!

    Oh, and he also says if I can get this sorted out for him before the
    weekend he'll buy me a slap-up pub lunch every day next week.
