Startup script to run exe files after user has logged in..?

Hello All,  I am wondering if there is any way to make a VBS logon script run several exe files once the user has completely logged in.. I tried to include the exe files in the script, but they did not work, I suspect because they need to run while the user is logged in.  Is there any way to do this?

Name = "C:\Windows\notepad.exe"
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Return = objShell.Run(Name, 1, true)

Open in new window

In case you need it to wait first you could do this. Note time for WScript.Sleep is in milliseconds.

WScript.Sleep 5000
 
Name = "C:\Windows\notepad.exe"
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Return = objShell.Run(Name, 1, true)

Open in new window
