On all the computers, we have AVG 9 (free) installed, and whenever a roaming or local profile logs in, it creates a shortcut on the desktop. Using Group Policy (or any other method) is there any way to prevent this?

Is the shortcut in the ALL users desktop folder?
Did it somehow become part of the default profile on the computers?

But my big question is, why are you using a free version of AVG in a business environment?

You should be able to delete the shortcut in your login scripts. Either have the login script launch a batch file to delete it or put it directly in the login script.

Thanks for the link JohnWill, I'll remove AVG (didn't know it wasn't legal on business environments). And thank's for the idea Squashman, I'll use a batch script at login.

If you're running the free version, it's only for personal use. Obviously, if you're buying AVG, it's find for a business. :)
