That's just it. The location at C:\ProgramData\....., the Startup folder is empty; and within %APPDATA%\Microsoft, it is empty past APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows (There is no Startup folder).

That's interesting... %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup is definitely where UEM/DEM creates shortcuts when you pick Programs folder as the destination, and enter Startup in the text box.
Does DIR /s/b "%USERPROFILE%"\*.lnk provide any insight into where those old shortcuts might reside? Are you by any chance redirecting the Startup folder or the AppData folder? (Symptoms would not quite match, but I'm clutching at straws here...)
It was the redirect. I was not thinking and it is stored on a network share. Thanks for your help.
