Offline file sync entries need removal through GPO

We are having an issue with offline file syncronization.  There are two entries that have appeared in nearly all of our computers in the domain.  I have turned off all offline files in the GPO, but they are still there.  Is there a way to remove all entries from offline files through GPO or a login script?

Let me quantify that.....

It can be done, but the share locations are cached at the local machine, in the Shares subkey above. Disabling at GPO doesnt remove those...

If you have removed it from gpo then it sounds like gpo hasn't replcated to those machines. On those machines do a gpupdate /force and reboot the computer from the command line

Cant do it from GPO.....

Add these to your login script....

reg delete "hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\netcache\shares" /f
reg add "hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\Shares" /ve
reg delete "hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\netcache\AssignedOfflineFolders" /f
reg add "hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\AssignedOfflineFolders" /ve

And if you dont need the local copies of the files cached....

reg add "hklm\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\netcache" /v FormatDatabase /t reg_dword /d 00000001
