When trying to login to one of our servers with RDP as administrator it responds with program cannot be started and refers to an old server name and the program is VNC.
Searched through GPO's, Registry, Login scripts and Startup but cannot find the source.

It is on a DC and only happens on one of our three DC's.

Open the Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration MMC and check the RDP-Tcp properties > Environemnt tab to see if you have vnc configured as a startup program there.

Here is the error below, this server "\\scispdc" was decommisioned some 6 years ago.  The DC I'm trying to connect to was brought online last year.  Started happening about a month ago.  Doesn't matter what machine you are connecting from.

Error
---------------------------
The system cannot find the file specified.
This initial program cannot be started: \\scispdc\share\vnc-3.3.7-x86_win32
Please consult help for more information

If you are only seeing the error when you RDP, then check my suggestion.
