Startup Script running after user logs in

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help. We are moving from Office 2010 to office 365 installed locally via click to run. This deployment is a nightware as no msi support is available for 365.

I have written a batch file which removes Office 2010 via offscrub10 and then installs 365 on startup. The problem I am having that even though the script works it only runs after the user has logged in.

I want the script to run and complete before the user can see their desktop, is this possible with a start up batch?
