Please can someone help me. I am struggling with this below.

I have this script on the C:\WINDOWS\SYSVOL on my Windows 2003 and 2008 Servers.

The script itself is
On Error Resume Next

Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

strUser = objNetwork.UserName

strStatus = strStatus

Select Case UCase(objNetwork.UserDomain)
      Case UCase("go1000")
            strHomeDir = "\\grkfs1\home\" & strUser
            objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "H:", strHomeDir, True
            objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "G:", "\\GRKFS1\go1000", True
            objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\grkfs1\LexmarkC.2"
            objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\top1\TOSHIBAe"
            objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\top1\Kyocera Colour"
            objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\top1\Kyocera BW"
End Select
objShell.RegWrite "HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Keyboard\InitialKeyboardIndicators", "2"
objShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard\InitialKeyboardIndicators", "2"
Function MapDrive(strDrive, strPath, bPersistent)
      If Not objFSO.DriveExists(strDrive) Then
            objNet.MapNetworkDrive strDrive, strPath, bPersistent
      End If
End Function

Some of my client are having issues with it when I look on their computer - event logs this is what I see below.

Could not execute the following script {C:\WINDOWS\SYSVOL\sysvol\go1000.local\scripts\new g1000 script.vbs. The system cannot find the file specified.}

Also, I see this {Failed to apply changes to software installation settings.  Software changes could not be applied.  A previous log entry with details should exist.  The error was : There is no software installation data object in the Active Directory}
