Running a script at shutdown.

Hello people.

My XP has a whole lot of housekeeping scripts (robocopying data to backup drives etc) going on at startup, and I wondered if there was a way of shifting them, so they run as part of a shutdown process instead.

I don't know if this will do it for you but

Start > Run gpedit.msc

Computer Configurations > Windows Settings > Scripts
Double click on Shutdown
