It sounds like a permissions problem... 

Make sure when you logon to check your script works, you do so with a
normal user account, rather than with one of your administration
accounts. Normal users normally have some reg. entries they are not
allowed to change, this the use of the .pol files, which windows trusts
if they are in the NetLogon directory.

Apart form that, can't offer much else advise.
