    NETLOGON folder opens when admin logs on

    Hi

    The last few days the NETLOGON folder opens when an Administrator logs on. I have been putting a few basic scripts in recently they include:

    Bossmans script to clean profiles
    Copy shortcuts
    Delete shortcuts
    Map Network Drives

    I have gone and run each script to see if it could be that but they don't open the folder then. I also disabled every group policy concerned with the computer and the user account and the folder still comes up.

    It’s no big issue but it’s annoying.

    Its happening on Windows XP & Windows Server 2003 (No other OS on the domain)

    Any thoughts please?

    Cheers

    Zak

    Your profile has saved with the window open. Just close the window, log off (so that your profile saves), log on and it should be fine. I take it you have a roaming profile then (you could just delete that too )

    Hi

    I have tried on 3 accounts with admin rights.

    My account has a roaming profile
    The admin account is a mandatory profile
    The Administrator account has a local profile.

    It comes up on all 3.

    Sounds like you might have something else opening it (perhaps a stray link in the startup folder?)

    try checking the contents of "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" for any shortcuts to NETLOGON

    Is it in one of the scripts?

    profile

    Look in the active directory snap-in. Chances are you have a small little space right before the profile that's typed in. We had the same problem and that was the fix.

    Have you moved one of the admin users into the default users container so you know no policy is applied (well almost none). Then delete the local profile and logon.
