I want to copy some files every time a user log in with a batch command file (NETLOGON folder). The batch should get the name of the user, check the desktop settings of his profile and copy some files in his specific desktop folder (profile). Any chance?

NETLOGON will be READ only for logged on users, so you'll have to store it somewhere else, where users have write access.
Unfortunately, this means users can delete these files too.
Bit of a dillemna !
The username variable is stored in %username% automatically - what exactly do you want to do with the profiles ?

Be careful the NETLOGON becomes from the PDC or the SDC. So if you want write some information from the %username% and the %computername% you must share a path into the PDC with RWD for every body. I can get you a example my e-mail gkollar@uapl.fr.

To modify the profile for specific user or a group you can use POLEDIT.EXE.
When a user log in the file .pol overwrite the register /HKEY_USER with the entry from the pol.
You can get more information on the web site microsoft, item ZAK ( Zero Administration Kit)
