Automatic Logoff after A certain Amount of User Inactivity
Posted on 2006-06-29
This question has already been asked by someone ahead me. The solution is inadequate for me, and that is why I have to ask the same question again.
The solution to the previous question was as the follows:

HOW TO: Force Users to Quit Programs and Log Off After a Period of Inactivity in Windows XP
How to Configure the Winexit.scr Screen Saver
Use Windows Explorer to locate the Winexit.scr file in the Windows 2000 Resource Kit folder on your hard disk.
Right-click the Winexit.scr file, and then click Install.
The Display Properties dialog box appears with the Screen Saver tab active. The Logoff Screen Saver entry is automatically selected. Click Settings.
Select the Force application termination check box to force programs to quit.
In the Countdown for n seconds box, type the number of seconds for which the logoff dialog box appears before the user is logged off.
In the Logoff Message box, type the message that appears during the logoff countdown. Click OK.
In the Display Properties dialog box, click Preview.
You see the Auto Logoff dialog box. It displays the logoff message and the countdown timer. Click Cancel.

My problem is: I could not find "Winexit.scr" anywhere in my system.
My system is Window XP Professional (SP2).
To recap, I would like the computers in my office to log off automatically if they are inactive for about 10 minutes.
My question is: Where can I find "Winexit.scr" and then what do I need to do beyond the above solution? Is there any other better solutions available?
In addition, I would like to customize the screensaver which may automatically run after the automatic logoff. For example, I would like to put words like "Welcome to Paradise Corp." on the screensaver.
Thank you experys as always!
