self check script during logon
Im in need of a script/program that will run during a logon and ask the user to check a number of things and require boxes to be ticked before the logon progresses.. Any idea how i would accomplish this? Is it even possible?

What kind of thing are you asking the user to check?
If its posible would it not be better to get the script to auto check without user interaction.
If its for example state of a room you would be better writing an app in vb and calling it via script in GP logon.

Logon scripts can run interactively, but they won't hold up the process. You can have it pop up a message box and the desktop will still load behind it. You can always go with a nag message in GPO that will popup when someone tries to logon to a specific computer. This will halt the logon process until OK is pressed. Be careful though, users have a strong tendency to just click through dialog boxes after a while.

Thanks for your replies guys. Basically im asking for the user to check if there is any damage on the laptop they are logging in on. The options would be screen, keyboard, other, or something along these lines. We want to get the students in the habit of checking them before they use them and want to make it as easy for them to do it as possible. We thought this would be an easier way to do it and we would get the info more quickly than recorded on sheets.

Potentially this is possible by configuring GPO to run scripts synchronously:
Run logon scripts synchronously
Then make a call to a hta script that has a html form with the information you want. VB script in the hta can then record the user input and then send the data to a text file/database?
Or create an exe using Visual Studio that does the same thing and make a call to the exe from a logon script.

You do realize that users will not read this after the first time and will just click anything to get them in quickly.
I changed an AUP a few year ago in an organisation to prove a point to management, for a week to say I will give the ict tech a brew and everyone clicked ok anf no one noticed. Users get click happy.
