Problem "running scripts" delay when laptop is away from domain

I have a client that often takes their laptop away to do demos using the laptop.  When they are off the local domain (SBS2008) (i.e. away on a trip) they often get a long (many minutes) startup delay with a status of "running scripts".  It looks like the script is "ClientAgent", located at <domain>\sysvol\<domain_name>\ClientAgent\ClientAgent.vbs.

What can be done to alleviate this huge startup delay?  Is this script important?

ClientAgent.vbs applies some user "preferences" through group policy that cannot be applied using other methods. Highly unlikely you have any need for this. You can disable in group policy management under the "Windows SBS CSE policy" under  Computer configuration | Policies | Windows Settings | Scripts | double click on logon | locate script | and choose remove. Note the path in case you want to add it back in.

PS- the policy will continue to run on the laptop untill updated. You can force this from the laptop by running    gpupdate /force  after making the changes on the SBS. The laptop will need to have domain access either by the LAN or VPN to update.
