I am having problems on our network with startup scripts.  They appear to be running on startup on a client but none are active on our AD and all settings are disabled.

This is slowing machines down upto 15 mins while startup scripts run.  This is Pre-logon.  startup scrits were enabled a while ago around 2 years ago but immediatly removed.  Can Anyone help me troubleshoot where I need to look to fix this.  I am yet to try gpupdate /force incase of a slow link issue but I am fishing for other things to try incase this does not work

Thanks

Is group policy being applied, i.e. were they removed.? I would run gpresult on one of the problem machines to see if the current policies are being applied/updated.

Also, are there any related errors in the event logs, possibly ones such as 1030, 1058, etc.?

I have found from doing a super verbose on GPresult the following
From the list I beleive the Max Wait time set to 0 (Infinate) is what is causing the issue - the script has been disabled for syncronous but not asyncronous hence they are still enabled with Max infinate wait time. I have put the setting to 10 seconds and disabled Async as well as Sync so this should fix this hopefully. (Done on computer setting not just user setting as computer takes presedence according to M/soft)

  KeyName:      Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
          ValueName:      MaxGPOScriptWait
          ValueType:      REG_DWORD
          Value:      0x00000000

          KeyName:      Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
          ValueName:      HideStartupScripts
          ValueType:      REG_DWORD
          Value:      0x00000001

          KeyName:      Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
          ValueName:      RunLogonScriptSync
          ValueType:      REG_DWORD
          Value:      0x00000000
