Hi

Just a small comment...
Windows 95 has 2 registry keys, one which runs programs AFTER the user has logged on, and the other which runs programs BEFORE any user has logged on.  I don't know if this works on NT, but you can give it a try.

To run a program AFTER user has logged on, add an entry to the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

To run a program BEFORE a user logs on, add an entry here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices

The 1st key (Run) works on NT, but I haven't tested the 2nd one (RunServices) on NT.

Regards,
JB
