  1. Auto Reboot after logoff

    Eheh, time has done it, I've found a way to do this so I thought I'd share it for those who are interested I use a rebooter in combination with psexec (sysinternals tool) and sleep.exe to go through My main logoff script copies the rebooter batch file to windows\temp then calls it with this command psexec -d "c:\windows\temp\rebooter.bat" rebooter.bat IF (%1)==() goto relaunch goto doreboot :relaunch psexec -d c:\windows\temp\rebooter.bat truc goto eof :doreboot sleep 15 shutdown -r -t 00 -f :eof exit Of course it's not a really clean way to do it, but it works... Psexec completely detach the rebooter batch from the logoff process, so finishing the logoff does not kill the batch, and once logoff is finished, shutdown command is accepted at last ... a whole day to find this trick, but now it's available to everyone
  2. Auto Reboot after logoff

    Hello I couldn't find a way to do this but maybe a genius could help me here I'm searching a way to Initiate a reboot when a user loggs off in certain conditions only The complete shceme is here I have a script that set Windows 3GB mode on when logging on some partical Users (domain policy) Once 3GB mode is active computer reboots and log on automatically with the same user name. What I would like is to make the computer reboot automatically when this user loggs off, and the computer was not set to 3GB mode before first login The matter is that it seems the logoff process is recognized as a "shutdown" option by Windows, So VBScript reboot and Shutdown commands can not run since a "shutdown" procedure is already running If anyone has an idea I'll take it

    Try to use the shift key down while opening the session maybe it's a program loaded in startup folder that tries to close the session ...

    Loading BGinfo.exe from sysinternals at boot with premade configuration can be cool too
  6. I want to remove accessories folder

    ECHO.Y | DEL "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories should get the job done too, by answering "y" to the question :-D good old batch trick ;-)

  10. Forbid access to usb drives

    Hello I don't know if this is the right place to post but here we go I need to forbid access to USB Drives, iPods and other external storage devices on some computer, I found a tweak some times ago by setting registry start to 0x04 for USBSTOR class It worked for a time, but users found that unplug the USB mouse and replace it with the storage seems to work I would of course need a free solution for it to work (or not work more precisely ) I couldn't find a post talking about it on MSFN so I'm sorry if this is a re-re-repost of already talked subject

    an advance in some ways ... the -3 response in the logfile means I do not have enough information in the iss file so it could be because quicktime's already installed on some systems... I'll continue my investigations
