Netlogon folder remains open from startup?

In a NT domain with 2008 Server as DC and mostly Windows XP as domain clients. I had added a logon.bat to a user's profile in AD. Then no longer needed it, so removed from profile and deleted actual .bat file from the DC's \\localhost\sysvol\<domain>\scripts folder. Now when that user logs on (typical domain user but local admin rights) the \\<domain>\netlogon folder appears and just remains open, so the user has to manually close it. The folder is empty. How can I fix this? Thx.

What happens if you put an empty file called logon.bat in the Netlogon directory ?
