    logoff script not doing its job

    Locked

    by kalapper ·

    Howdy all, I have a quick question for you…. I am using a logoff script via group policy to clear the browser history at logoff, but it isnt doing its job. I am using one I found on the web called exp.cmd it’s verbatim is:

    cd %homedrive%%homepath%
    rd /s/q cookies
    rd /s/q locals~1\history
    rd /s/q locals~1\tempor~1

    What happens is the machine fereezes at “running logoff scripts” and you have to hardwire reset to continue 🙁 I tried removing the last line and then it will log out properly, but wont clear the websites visited. Any ideas?
    THX all!

      I forgot to mention, I think it may be due to the group policy security I have applied. It is a user account that I am trying this on, so it is tight. If necessaqry I will just do it on the image before I ghost it and hopefully it will work then. Anyway, thanks gals/guys!

      What are the users permissions set as? I am assuming you are using XP pro on a windows domain. Does the user have full permissions over the directory you are tiring to delete?
