Hi all,

I have a written startup script that will uninstall a software package, reboot and then Install a newer version. this is applied to windows 7 computers by group policy.

What i want to do it stop users from being able to login until the script has completed and also make the script visible so i can monitor the progress of the install.

I've changed settings in GP to try and get it to behave the way I want but have had no luck.

What settings should I have in place to make this happen?

Thanks for the Help
