AutoCAD 2014LT showing drawings as 'Education'

I have a bunch of users upgraded to 2014LT recently, worked fine for over a month, but suddently out of the blue, some users when opening drawings, they are prompted with the message 'This drawing were created by an Education copy'.
They are all genuine licences purchased from authorised Autodesk dealer and are all activated over the internet, so I am at a lost as to what is causing this error.

If this happen at startup before opening a file.  The program is using a bad template file (.dwt) or is actual education version.

AutoCAD always verifies files as they are opened.  Try opening a file that was last modified before your upgrade.

I would check with your reseller to make sure you were given a commercial version to install.

Thanks,
Going by the timeline, I suspect that one of the user who worked on this project either created something or small blocks on a Educational licence, or someone had access to some third party tools that were created for Educational purpose, I were informed by AutoDesk that this is the only way the Educational Product problem can come through, managed to get our dealer to 'removed' the tags, and have now set policies for users not to mess around with anything other than whats provided.
