We had this computer on our domain but we are redeploying it as a Kiosk machine.  The Kiosk's have no reason to be on our domain for security reasons.  I've installed SiteKiosk v8 software on this Windows 7 64bit machine.  Everything works great except when I log into the LOCAL user it appears as if the machine is still contacting our domain.  We use EventSentry and I get the following message every time I log onto this kiosk box with a local user.


EVENT #      65036788

The thing is like I said, I removed this machine from the domain. I changed it to a kiosks WORKGROUP and renamed it at the same time.  What on this machine is trying to contact the domain at logon?

You can use NetMon to track the traffic to domain controller which will tell you that what process is connecting.

Ah ok it looks like it was related to Desktop Authority Script Logic CBM Service (Computer Based Management).

We use Script Logic's Desktop Authority and I just uninstalled everything related to it.  No more errors!

@ITdiamond, great news! You can also check local Group Policy results to ensure all GPO settings are restored to default.
