well....all the icons and what not that's on the desktop that you put there...just delete the shortcuts....as for the "my documents" and stuff like that..you'll have to modify the local computer policy...i'll have to do some research to find the actual settings that y ou want to change...and their locations..

Have you tried this?

Right click anywhere on the decktop and select Properties. Then under the Desktop tab press the Customize Desktop button. Then uncheck the four items at the top for My Computer, My Documents, Network Neighborhood, and Internet Exporer.

That should get everything except the recycle bin.
