How can I run a command when the computer shuts down using the normal shutdown routine (start -> shutdown computer -> shutdown). With Windows 98 it was eay using the Task Scheduler (I believe it was called that way), but I can't seem to find an alternative in Windows XP (Home Edition).

Well, first off there is a task scheduler (it's called "Scheduled Tasks" in Programs - Accessories - System Tools.

Second, you can just create a shortcut to a batch file that runs what you want and then shuts down the system.

What about the group policy editor. Gives you options for startup/shutdown scripts
Yeah, I know, but that is only available in XP Professional, right? I can't seem to find it though.

edit: I see this your second post, on behalf of everyone here, I welcome you to NTFS.org!

I think I should use that now. Now there is one more thing, but I will start a new thread about it, because it is a little off topic.

edit:link is here.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
