Automatic Logon, Local logonscript refuses to run
Posted on 2004-08-06
I've got a stand-alone Windows XP Pro Sp1-computer, which I want to secure.
This computer will be used by some of clients in my company.
I do not want to give them rights to change something.
So I've created a registry-file which hide\disables almost anything for the regular local user.
This file is called upon during logon, via the Logon script in the propertiestab of the local user.
I've got a similar script for the administrator, which unhides\enables everything which used to be hidden. Everything works like a charm. Changes to any of the two files will be incorporated after the next reboot.
But then I wanted to use the automatic logon-feature:
Automatic logon works, but now the script for the regular user fails to run.
Any changes I made to the registry-file will not be incorporated in the registry.
If I logon manually with the user, the changes will be made.
So the combination logon-scripts and Autologon is at fault.
Does anybody know how I can resolve this problem?
