Is there a reason why your script is not on your domain controller? You should be saving the script in a location accessible to all users/workstations (not C drive), usually the default location it provides when you're linking the script to the GPO.

e.g.
\\mydomain.com\SYSVOL\mydomain.com\Policies\{99320-3543-4354GroupPolicy GUID}\Users\Scripts\Logon\

Oh is the logoff script pointed to c:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\user\scripts\logoff in Group Policy??  If it is then it will point to the users computer's c:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\user\scripts\logoff...  Which probably doesnt exist.

(oops in your case Logoff folder not Logon)

If it still does not work, check the event log on the workstation.

You can also create another "test" logon script and assign it to yourself and see if you get a pop up when you log on the system:

Wscript.Echo "HELLO WORLD!"

@zgiuffria yes, when i go to edit group policy and click on show files, it takes me to the path C:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\user\scripts\logoff

@thinkpaper i have placed the logoff.bat file in

\\kami-server\SYSVOL\kamisama.com\scripts\logoff.bat

i did not see a folder called \{99320-3543-4354GroupPolicy GUID}\Users\Scripts\Logon\ under the policies folder. also under users, there is no script folder. Am i suppose to create them?

what i see under the polices folder is

\\kamisama.com\SYSVOL\mydomain.com\Policies\{6AC1786C-016F-11D2-945F-00C04fB984F9}\Users\
                                                                            \{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\Users\

Ok so the organizational unit that the user is under.  (under active directory)  Has that policy applied to it right?  Or is the policy applied to the entire domain?
