Load Specific Theme not working with Run Only Specified Windows Applications

Problem

When configuring a very restricted desktop for 3rd party access we configured the ‘Run Only specified Windows Applications’

Surprisingly very little actually stopped working.

However the Windows Aero.theme was no longer being applied:

Solution

Add the following executables to allow the theme to apply: shell32.dll, dwm.exe, rundll32.exe svchost.exe, regsvr32.exe in the group policy location

User Configuration> Policies > Administrative Templates > System > Run only specified Windows applications

Add Desktop Shortcuts like "My computer" and "Network" for Windows 2008 and Windows 2008 R2 and in Remote Desktop
