Problems with Group Policy with restricted user account

    We have had one administrator using Vista since the start of the year. Now
    we want to bring Vista into use for a group of restricted user accounts, and
    by that, I mean that they aren't power users or administrators or anything
    like that.

    It seems clear to date that MS has put a whole pile of extra security stuff
    into Vista that just makes it that much harder for a domain administrator to
    set up a PC if the users are not power users and don't have any particular
    rights on the local machine. The reason it is clear is we are seeing issues,
    errors and problems that don't show up when someone whose account has
    privileges logs onto a machine. The experience is completely different from
    Windows XP; these issues simply aren't seen there at all.

    For example, I kept getting errors when I tried to run GPUpdate and would be
    told that the new policy could not be applied. After a lot of toing and
    froing, trying to find out about the problem, I found a suggestion that I
    needed to give the Domain Computers group security access to the
    Organisational Unit in Active Directory where the computer's account was
    stored. This fixed the problem.

    The main problem that I am still having with the logon is that Folder
    Redirection policy cannot complete. This is pretty important because the
    user can't get access to their documents, which are stored in a shared
    location on the server and are not accessible in their usual profile
    location. The event logged for this problem is as follows:

    Log Name: System
    Source: Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy
