I am trying to get a startup script to run in my GPO but it's not working.. The script is just a simple bat file that is going to install my AV..

It's not that the script isn't working it's just flat out not getting executed.. I've tried logging in as admin and nothing happens so I don't think it's permissions related..

In my GPO I have both Authenticated Users and Domain Computers.

I tried changing to make the startup script visible, I never see it..

I tried changing run startup scripts asyncronously and that didn't help either.

When I do a rsop.msc it does have the correct policy, the script is listed..

When I do a gpresult /v it lists the bat file but says "LastExecuted: This script has not yet been executed."

I also tried changing the location of the script and that didn't work either!

I'm totally out of ideas!
