i can't apply these reg tweak... i paste them on notepad and save them as a *.reg file, when i run it windows pop-up an error saying that its not a valid registry script.

You need to add this line at the very start of the file.

What is causing my start-menu picture to not appear? (Only name), How do i make it appear like default?

I apply in cmdlines.txt the following .reg file for autologon.reg:

What is causing my start-menu picture to not appear? (Only name), How do i make it appear like default?

When do u create the user and how ?

Try creating a new user from User Accounts in Control Panel.

Picture won't display if u created users at t-12, i suppose. :)

Your paths contain spaces. Try putting quotes around them.

If you just want to remove the items from the list, you will not find them in the registry.

Try the following in a cmd file:

CMDOW @ /HID
@ECHO OFF

:: cleaning user SendTo items
IF EXIST "%Userprofile%\SendTo\Mail Recipient.MAPIMail" DEL "%Userprofile%\SendTo\Mail Recipient.MAPIMail"
IF EXIST "%Userprofile%\SendTo\Desktop (create shortcut).DeskLink" DEL "%Userprofile%\SendTo\Desktop (create shortcut).DeskLink"
IF EXIST "%Userprofile%\SendTo\Compressed (zipped) Folder.ZFSendToTarget" DEL "%Userprofile%\SendTo\Compressed (zipped) Folder.ZFSendToTarget"
IF EXIST "%Userprofile%\SendTo\My Documents.mydocs" DEL "%Userprofile%\SendTo\My Documents.mydocs"

EXIT

If on the other hand you wish to remove the SendTo entry completely you could try this in a Reg file

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To]

@echo off

COPY /Y "%systemdrive%\Install\AdAware\defs.ref" "%PROGRAMFILES%\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Professional\"
COPY /Y "%systemdrive%\Install\AdAware\sites.txt" "%PROGRAMFILES%\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Professional\"

COPY /Y "%systemdrive%\Install\AdAware\settings.awc" "%UserProfile%\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\"

PAUSE

anything wrong with this code, it won't work (this is called during the first logon after installation of a clean window OS)

errr YES, its in the wrong thread.. it has NOTHING to do with Registry Tweaks... so basically it is spam for the people who subscribe to this thread for information. Start a new thread if you need to.... ??

I create user account at T-12 with autologon.cmd and autologon.reg, called from cmdlines.txt.

Autologon.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"DefaultUserName"="myusername"
"DefaultPassword"=""
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"

Autologon.cmd

One thing I know of that can cause this is disabling the Windows Welcome screen on boot and using the Windows Classic log in. I didn't see anything in your reg tweaks that is applying this setting, but I may simply have overlooked it or you may be applying the same setting elsewhere.

Hope this helps.

I don't get the welcome screen, or the screen where you can click user images to log-on, so I guess i am using the calssic logon (I would like the new type).

In control panel I just tried to change method of log-in and switch user accounts. I got an error message. (in norwegian, so here is my translation).

A recently installed program has deactivated the welcome screen and quick user switch. If you would like to reactivate these features, you have to uninstall the program. The following filename can help you identify the program that is causing the problem: gina.dll

-I found gina.dll in system32 dir

also it is in my register under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] "ginadll"="gina.dll"

PS: I use automatic logon from my cmdlines.txt as follows:

useraccount.cmd

cmdow @ /HID
@echo off

net user myusername /add
net localgroup Administratorer myusername /add
net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited
REGEDIT /S autologon.reg
EXIT

autologon.reg:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"DefaultUserName"="myusername"
"DefaultPassword"=""
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"
