Default Can Windows XP run a script upon being Unlocked?

Can Windows XP run a script upon being Unlocked? E.G. if I push Windows Key + L the computer locks and takes me to the welcome screen. When I sign back in, is it possible to have a script run? Thanks.

I don't think so, since you already started up, logging out and back into the same user in Windows doesn't reload everything again.

You can have a script load during startup, but I don't know about logging out and back in again.

only logging in and logging out have scripts run but not locked which would make sense because what ever you would want to run would be done on the log in.

even on windows start no scripts will run because it doesnt no what policy to apply cuz it doesnt know who is using the machine. so only on log ins and log outs.
