Which group policy is uninstalling software on reboot?

Hi, I have taken on a new customer lately and it seems to be taken over by just loads of group policies administered by an SDI software of some kind.

For example, if I instal logmein and then restart the computer its uninstalled by the time it comes back up again.

Which group policy would be doing this or would it be on the local machine?

There is also some prism deploy software here.

Group Policy can use Software Restriction to remove unauthorized software:

This can be a user or a compuer setting.  Do a GPRESULT on a machine with the issue and then look over what each of those GPOs do.  Prism Deploy can only uninstall through it's "Rollback" feature, from what I can tell.  The documentation indicates that it can only uninstall software it installs:

Still looking into this.

So, you are saying it wasn't the software restriction policy?

That's pretty much the only policy that I can think of that would do such a thing. I really think DrUltima was correct.

This program was hidden quite well on the server and wasnt obvious on the workstations. It was deepfreeze.

Thanks!
