Could you tell a little bit more about the issue, please?

Where the script is saved and how it is executed? Is that in SYSVOL or in local computer's drive?

What this script is doing in general?

Thank you in advance for more details.

Regards,
Krzysztof

Don't logon as admin. That, by default at login, disables access to network drives. Later, an admin user can logon to the network drives.

In general, users should not logon with admin rights. I newer do, except when having to perform admin tasks where I have a dedicated admin account with admin rights.

The script points to a Domain Controller. I don't know how it's executed.  I think it's in a SYSVOL.

To clarify, it is a standard user with administrative privileges.

It is probably a login script called when the user logs on.
Use the group manager to verify this.

What group manager? How do I verify this? Do you mean local users and groups? Will this fix the problem?

That's a longer story and not that user (admin) friendly, but browse for Group Policy Management and login/logon script.

Often you can open the GPM directly: C:\WINDOWS\system32\gpmc.msc

The scripts themselves are buried in the SYSVOL\sysvol\policies folder in folders named with a GUID so with a bit of luck you can browse to it or them.
