Andy - Did you get to the bottom of this one?. I'm having the same issue
- I had initially assumed that it was to do with the way that I'd set up
and replicated the mandatory profile I'd put together. Most stuff on the
web points to the registry key you mention but I can't actually see
anything wrong with it.

Subject: [THIN] default search provider being corrupted in IE8

I've got a site where they're looking to roll out IE8 on their W2k3
XenApp servers 


Everything installs and is (relatively) dandy - other than a message for
users about the search engine getting 'corrupted' whenever they log on:


    A Program on your computer has corrupted your default search setting
for Internet Explorer.


    Internet Explorer has reset this setting to your original search


    Internet Explorer will now open Search Settings, where you can
change this setting or install more search providers.


It seems that this is happening because IE8 appears to want
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WIndows\Currentversion\explorer\user shell
folders\appdata to be %USERPROFILE%\appdata - rather than the redirected
value it currently is. 


Has anyone come across this and got a "fix"? Or could suggest one? I
could change it from the value it is now to the local profile - but then
I've got to redesign the locked down profile stuff thats going on
