Citrix XenApp 6 Policies not applying

If you have read some of my other posts recently you will know that I am in the process of designing and building a new Citrix environment to replace my companies old PS4 desktop setup. Recently we found that Citrix Policies were not applying on a consistent basis.  What normally occurs is that a key is created HKLM\software\policies\ .  This contains all of the policies which are relevant to your particular session. During our testing we found that this key was not being written when logging on, which meant users had access to everything they wanted including client drives from home! The problem was even harder to diagnose though, we saw that when Group Policy was updated automatically every 90 minutes during a session, the was written with the correct settings.  This meant nothing as the shell had already been setup and these settings would not apply. As these keys are not deleted on logoff, when new users logged in they would inherit the settings of another user.  Now hope
