The whole idea is to standardise the staff start menu, what ever pc they log 
onto. With all the necessary icon nd shortcuts they need.

what are you trying to accomplish by redirecting the start menu.  Just 
curious.  There might be some other techniques to get you to the same place.

Thanks Jim

I tried that but did not work, so just like you suggested there might be 
latency somewhere else. What I did notice though was that browsing the share 
that held the start menu was very slow

There is a start menu key at
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Desktop \ MenuShowDelay 
400 is default and changing to a smaller number might speed it up but it could 
be that you have latency elsewhere.
