An old GPO logon script is still running on clients, eventhough it has long been disabled/deleted. It was a simple batch file that created a shortcut on client desktops. How do I make it stop doing this?

When you disable/delete a GPO, it does not remove it from the client PCs.  You will need to create a GPO that un-specifies the login script.

I set up a GPO to delete shortcuts under "User Configuration/User Settings/Shortcuts" and they stopped appearing! Thanks
