on longin the administrator user of this server runs 5 dos windows that run cscript.exe

How do I get rid of these anoying cscript runs' in the login of this user.

I see nothing in hklm run or in scripts dir.  There is no default script bat file on this server, so the cscript is being called from somewher else.  It is a domain controller.

Thanks in advance.

Group policy objects can also call login scripts. Open the Group Policy Management Console, and run the Group Policy Results Wizard. Specify the username and the computername in the wizard. After the wizard completes, click on the Settings tab and look for any scripts.

Look for any entries under:

User Configuration\Windows Settings\Scripts\Logon


Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Scripts\Logon
Are there any errors in the 5 windows?

cscript.exe may also be a malicious worm trying to wreak havoc...

No errors show windows appear and then go away.

Goban:  I did not see any entries in your suggestion.
