disable "loading your personal settings" disable "applying your settings" "saving your settings"

Upon logging as a user into a windows 2000 server, I need to disable the messages that appear such as "loading your personal setttings", "saving your settings"   "applying your setttings" and the windows graphic icon.     Are there settings that can disable such prompts and icons in windows upon loggin in or loggin out?  

why?  upon a user loggin in I have set up only one application to run.  therefore I want no other screens to appear.

W2K is relatively secure in the sense that you have to log in as a valid user of one type or another. It creates profiles for each user [permissions, sharing, etc.]
To my knowledge there is no way to disable this as it is basic to the function of the o/s.
The icon & message displays are probably originally generated by W2K's version of the Win9x explorer.exe [I'm guessing].
I suspect that you would have problems disabling those specific GUI windows/messages & disabling them all [if even possible] could have operational problems.

Is this THAT important?

viroj,

The "Applying...etc.." is a validation process that is integral to a windows 2000 profile. (Meaning.. not much you can do to remove it.)

I'll go out on a limb here, but it sounds like your trying to setup an application for Terminal Services? You can have it setup so that when a user loggs on, all he will be able to see is that particular app. To do this:

Under "Active Directory Users and Computers", Right click on the users name, and select "Properties". Click on the "Environment" tab, and place a checkmark on "Start Following Program on logon". Now you can place the path to that application, and your set. The next time someone loggs on with that id, they will only get that app.
