Windows 7: Get Disk quota popup every time system boots

Get Disk quota popup every time system boots

Hi all:

Hope this is the correct forum.

Every time I boot my system, just after the blue background screen appears and just before the login screen comes up, I get a message stating: "Applying Microsoft Disk Quota Policy". It sits there for approx 30 seconds (seems longer) then the boot completes successfully. This is accompanied by an event in the 'System' event logs. It throws an event ID of 1085 which, from what I can tell, is a generic event for Disk Quota and about ten other items. There is no further info that I can find in TechNet.

I've checked each of my hard-drives (C & D) and the two USB drives and all have quotas disabled. I've been through the Group Policy MMC and as far as I can tell there is nothing about disk quotas being configured, but I could easily have missed something.

Unfortunately I can't remember when this first showed up.

System info:

Win 7 Ultimate x64 running on Asus MB M4N72-E, AMD Phenom quad-proc 2.8 Ghz CPU, 8 GB Kingston ddr2, 1TB (C) and 1 160GB (D) drives.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
