Global GPO causing Favorites to be Alphabetically Reordered

I have a applied a basic Global GPO that added 2 favorites and put them at the top of the favorites list. Every now loggs into the network and somehow their existing favorites are now reordered. I cant seem to find the setting. Is there one or is this by design with Microsoft. Is the registry key that holds the favorites being deleted when these 2 are added by the GPO?

That would cause the items to be alphabetically put in order...

More work than you expect.

Look at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MenuOrder\Favorites\Menu. and consider that some code would have to be written by you to create the new order.

This is happening throughout the whole company. Should I look on one of the machines? There are a lot a scripts that are running as part of the business.

Would you say to look at all the scripts that are kicking off as part of the login process?

No. I would...

Write that you may be wanting the GPO to do more than it does. When this happens, you write more code to get the effect you want. I offer the XP registry key that sets the order. You get to consider how many days you have to write the code to get the order to work.

I know the key and thank you very much for your help.
