Find out the Script that changes Outlook settings

I have looked through Group policy to find if there are any settings that may change my own settings on Outlook 2010 but could not find any GPO settings. I wonder if there is a way to find out if there is a script somewhere that is hitting MSoutlook 2010 and changing the Settings.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Which settings are you trying to change exactly? Some are in Group Policy and some are registry or scripts.

When you ran an rsop or gpresult did you see any login scripts.  Have you also checked those.  I know you stated you looked at the settings.

If you setup a test user and block all GPOS (test OU/bock inheritance).   Does the same problem happen?

Thanks

it is not GPO..
I got my outlook calendar Default user permissions switching back from Free/busy to Reviewer.
I thought there might be a scheduled  script somewhere that is changing it back to Reviewer.

I could not find what is causing the change
