Sounds simple enough.
To make sure that each user receive the generic customization of the My
Documents, My Music, and My Pictures folder, you must delete the
"Owner=Administrator" entry in the [DeleteOnCopy] section. Note that the
Desktop.ini file is marked with the System and Hidden attributes. You must
maintain these attributes. You can use the notepad desktop.ini command at a
command prompt to modify the Desktop.ini file.
