    Logon script runs at startup and not at user logon


    I have 3 PCs, and my logon script in my Group Policy (C:\WINDOWS\System32\GroupPolicy\User\Scripts\Logon) runs as expected at user logon in all 3 PCs. However, in my fourth PC, the logon script runs at startup prior to a user logging onto this PC. I cannot seem to figure out the reason; can anyone please help me?

    Maybe the PC where the script runs right away has only 1 user.

    Presumably, in the GPO GUI, you have made sure that the script is under User Configuration > Windows Settings > Scripts and NOT under Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Scripts by mistake ?

    I checked that multiple times, and it is correct; I have nothing under the Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > because I donít want any scripts to run at startup.

    Try to disable the setting below (if active)

    Problem solved! Even though there are 3 users, the other 2 users never logged in, so their accounts weren't fully created and the OS only s ees it as a 1 user PC. Therefore, as "ricardobonner" suggested the script runs right away because it sees only 1 user.
