Hello,

I would like to create a login script that will open up a certain folder upon login. Basically when the user logs into the domain, the script will run and automatically launch exlorer and show the folder.

Would be best if I can prevent shut down of the computer and only logoff as well. Is there any good sites that can help in creating login scripts?

Thanks!
Kei

For preventing logoff you can handle all of this with group policy.

If I wanted to open up a browser , say Firefox, would l just set the path to the Firefix exe?
