    It's that time of week again! W00t!

    I don't have anything on my particular section of startup and shutdown, however I do have some in the logon/logoff section, but we will get to that at a later time.

    Anyone want to share concepts, or the scripts entirely? .VBS or .BAT?

    Post away ppl!

    I'm thinking something useful here would be to auto-delete all files in the following directories....

    c:\documents and settings\%username%\cookies
    c:\documents and settings\%username%\local settings\history
    c:\documents and settings\%username%\local settings\temp
    c:\documents and settings\%username%\local settings\temporary internet files
    c:\windows\prefetch
    c:\windows\temp

    OK, OK, maybe a little aggressive EVERY time, but it's habit. I have dabbled with a batch file to do this before, but I don't always get all the files, or all the folders, or vice versa. I'm learning VBScript, but it's on the back burner due to like a billion other projects.

    Anyone have something similar, or input?

    hmm, what os are you running, if you are on a network and have AD setup there is an option for that. Not sure about normal login/logout though

    I am running WIN2K3 Enterprise

    I got a bit confused, the post I put above would have been related to logon/logoff. But, now that I think about it, I could do an else/if type setup to clear all users only at startup/shutdown.

    When you start pricing licensing for Microsoft products then it gets expensive. Which I am sure you already know.
