Default XP Logoff Script.

How do i get the Logoff script to show the command window?

I currently have a batch file that gives a user the choice on whether to continue with the batch file (which does a quick backup of specific folders) or cancel the backup and continue shutting down.

I've tried the reg entry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies]
"HideLogoffScripts"=dword:00000000

(where 0 is display and 1 is hide).

Any other ideas?

Thanks

I could do that... but believe me... some users here might find that too much for them to remember. I know panic would set in the administration office, and shipping would have to take a day for training!

LOL

Thanks for the idea thou...
