Deleted login script keeps running on XP Pro Machine

I have about 5 or so machines that keep running a login script even though I have removed the script from group policy.  I have run rsop and everything looks right but the script keeps running.  Are scripts cached somewhere on local PC?  I have installed client side extensions for xp and server 2008.  The machines are all SP 3.  All the other machines I have run fine but these 5 machines.  

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

is it a user logon script, or a machine logon script?

if it is a user script, try rebooting the machine and renaming the user's local profile.

It is a machine login script.
Type gpedit.msc  in run  hit "ok" and navigate to the computer configuration part and expand the same, under windows settings->sciprt->logon/logoff check any logon script assigned here.

If its available remove the same.

Check in user configuration as well for any logon scirpt configured there.

Try moving the Computer to different OU if no go then rejoin one of the client computer to domain and check.

To manually remove the login script from registry (if it has been removed in domain Group Policy), go to HKLM/Software/Policies/Microsoft and locate the login script and remove/delete it. Reboot and test. If it gets reapplied, then it is still NOT disabled to the Domain Group Policy.
