My boss was having the same "too much crap" problem and this helped a lot.

Subject: [Samba] Slow update time for Desktop icons
I've got one user that I just put onto the new Samba 3.0.8 server. He's on
WinXP SP1. He has a ton of icons and things on his desktop (39M worth of
data according to his profile) but I'm not sure if that is a problem. When
he logs in, a few of his icons which point to network applications have only
the default Windows shortcut image. If he right-clicks the Desktop and
clicks "Refresh" the pictures become what they are supposed to be. I do not
see this problem with other systems, but this is the only XP SP1 box I have.
We can't upgrade him because we are waiting on some hardware compatibility
issues to be resolved.
Is it just that he has too much on his desktop, or is there something I can
on either his side or the server side to fix this issue? It seems somewhat
similar to other refresh problems of the print queue and Explorer windows.
