How are startup scripts handled in SBS 2008

jennx asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-07

I have a SBS 2008 network that was migrated from SBS 2003. When the domain computers boot, it takes a long time because it stalls for several minutes on "Running startup scripts." This takes place prior to logging in. This isn't a login script. None of my GPO's are enforced but all of them are enabled. In my mind, if they aren't enforced, then any startup scripts within them shouldn't run. So where is this startup script coming from. Where are they stored? I don't want any to run, so I'm just going to delete it if only I could find it.
