Maybe you could do a copy as part of a login script instead. Or something with roaming profiles. If you put a copy of the .default profile to your netlogon share, it will be used by the clients for seeding their profile rather than the one on their local machine.

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.

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.
