Prevent Users from Viewing Login Script

By InletGroveHS ·
Is there anyway that I can prevenet users from viewing the programming / coding in my VBS login script?

It is located in the default location (\\server\netlogon) and is in use.

However, I would like to implement some other tools that in the coding will reviel some directory locations that I would rather them not know about.

Here is a Technet article that talks about hiding the logon script window:

Not exactly what I am looking for. I am currently using Visual Basic Scripting for my login scripts. This doesn't display the commands while running, so that is not the problem.

What I have a problem with is people going to the \\server\NETLOGON directory and viewing the contents of the script there (right-click -> edit).

Hi,
You can encrypt the file using the script encoder from microsoft - screnc.exe, running it against your vbscript will produce another vbscript with a VBE extension which will be encrypted. Note that there are some decryption tools around that a knowledgable user can use to break the encryption, but if they are that determined they will probably get in whatever you do.
