I wish to write a logoff script that will delete the internet webpage history and clear the contents of a temporary mapped storage drive and desktop.

Any Ideas?

Will you batch be run from a server (domain controler) or directly from the computer?

This script will delete all the temporary files. Please check
dim foldername
Dim ofso
    Dim sDirectoryPath
    Dim oFolder
    Dim oFileCollection
    Dim ofoldercollection
    Dim oFile
    dim wshshell
dim WshSysEnv
    Set ofso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
On Error Resume Next
cleanfolder (ofso.GetSpecialFolder(2))
cleanfolder  (WshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%UserProfile%") & "\cookies\")
cleanfolder  (WshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%UserProfile%")& "\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\")
cleanfolder  (WshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%UserProfile%")& "\Local Settings\History\")
cleanfolder  (WshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%UserProfile%")& "\Recent")
Private Sub cleanfolder(foldername)
msgbox foldername
    Set ofso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set oFolder = ofso.GetFolder(foldername)
    Set ofoldercollection = oFolder.SubFolders
    For Each oFolder In ofoldercollection
    'This is used to get the temp directory. to point to another directory use as set ofolder = ofso.getfolder("C:\your path")
    Set oFolder = ofso.GetFolder(foldername)
    Set oFileCollection = oFolder.Files
    For Each oFile In oFileCollection
    Debug.Print oFile.Name
    oFile.Delete (True)
    Set ofso = Nothing
    Set oFolder = Nothing
    Set oFileCollection = Nothing
    Set oFile = Nothing
end sub
