sbs_login_script.bat is very large

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think you have a corrupt script file.  I'd delete that sucker - these are batch scripts typically.  Shouldn't be more than a few K - MAYBE a couple hundred K if you're script happy and have it doing EVERYTHING.
GIGS?!?!  I'm skeered.  If you are concerned, and can spare the space for a bit, rename it and see what happens.

Delete it.  This file should be push from your SBS server each time you logon.  It shouldn't come back at 2.75 Gb!

If this file already resides on the server (and you are the administer) and it is being pushed to everyone at this size try editing it down to just a normal batch (script) file with a resonable size.
