Post Running Batch Files in XP

Quick question...

My school forces some logon scripts when you logon to the domain, one of which creates some annoying icons. I wrote a simple little batch file to delete them, but where do I specify it to be run at logon? I tried simply putting it in startup folder, but thats no good. I also tried running it from autoexec.bat, but thats also no good. Any help?

If you would have access to the registry, then you can append it in HKEY_CURRENT_USER somewhere. I know it can be done, but MicroBell could probably have the specific anwer...

with the registry editor, do they put it in "C:\Windows\System32" or somewhere else? because you will need to open it from there if you can't use 'start, run'
