    Alternatively, you could copy NirCmd to the Windows folder via Group Policy Preferences or PowerShell. e.g.

    Code:
    Get-Content X:\Computers.txt | ForEach { Copy-Item X:\NirCmd.exe -Destination \\$_\c$\Windows }

    @localzuk?
    Could you not have the nircmd exe located either in the sysvol / netlogon directory on the server and access it from there ( as all PC's ) should have access to that location if they are connected to the network which a startup script will only apply if they are connected to the network anyway

    Would that not be a better option then having nircmd copied to each pc on the network ?

    The thing with the script I did is it does not take into consideration if the script has already run , what level the volume is set to currently before it runs etc so if you run it again and then a 2nd time etc it will just keep increasing the volume on the pc until it is at maximum where as the nircmd solution will allow you to set the volume to a specific volume level regardless of what level it was on previously

    Yep that makes sense. Will try nircmd again using a logon script.
