TZMove script tries to run when users log on to network

When users log into our network, a cmd line script tries to run.  It will evenually error and give the following: "The system cannot find the file \\hwadc1\software\tzmove.exe".  When you close the box it gives another error that the specified file cannot be found.  It is never going to find the file because "hwadc1" is a DC that has been out of commission for at least a year.  This error just began happening.  I had AD problems and now that AD is running without errors, users are seeing this after logging on and before their desktop appears.  I know that TZmove has to do with the DST issue.  We also migrated from Exchange 2003 whiich was on hwadc1 to Exchange 2007 on its own server approx a year ago.  Microsoft cannot find any reference of this "command" in AD.  It only happens to users contained in the "users ou" under my domain.  It is not listed in a group policy.  Does anyone have any idea where I can look or  how to make this stop?  Could it be running from Exchange 2007 somehow?  I hired a consultant to talk care of the DST issue and to migrate Exchange for me.  They do not have any idea why this is happening now.  If I install the TZMove.exe on a machine, the error stops; however, I need to get to the underlying problem.  Thanks

this is definitely not a exchange issue.

it is more to network scripts and/or group policy

when a user login,
 check all the possible group policy it run
run a group policy report on specific user on specific workstation and see whether it got anything on your eye.

also check the ADUC to see whether it got a logon scripts

beside that, you can use your group policy and enable/show the pop up so you know what scripts is running in the background

Check if you have a logon script.

Thanks to both of you. Because of your answers I began to dig a bit deeper and found each user has a Login Script running under their User Profile in ADUC.  that is the script that is trying to run and obviously cannot be found.  Thanks again!
