Windows 2003 Server R2
Windows XP workstations
Using the Group Policy Management console, I used group policy's 'software installation' to push software to the client computers. As the software is now no longer in use, I removed the software package from Group Policy and chose the option to delete the software from the workstations. Now, every time a computer starts up, they receive the message "Removing Managed Software XYX." This occurs on every workstation, even those from which the software has definitely already been moved. If this were the only issue, I wouldn't mind so much. However, some workstations actually hang on the "Removing Managed Software" screen and can't be logged into as a result.
Ideally, I'd like to go back into Group Policy and tell it to stop trying to remove the managed software, but since I deleted the software package, there is nothing for me to configure. How can I stop Group Policy from trying to remove the software?
Thanks for any help you can give!
