    No - a startup script is a special one. We had to unblock ability to run batch files but block and saving of them on file servers - it is also blocked via outlook by default, and also on memory sticks using USBDLM.

    This is proving to be more hassle than it is worth!

    For students I plug the path of the Favourites location directly into User Shell Folders using the Registry wizard in Policy Preferences.

    I then created a custom start menu to add Favourites to it as a menu, then it pops out as menu.

    I also hide Favourites from Internet explorer, so that there is no access to Add to Favourites. Not that they could add anything anyway because the shared location is read-only on our public drive!!

    For all staff I use Favourites and Links, which is under 'URLs' in Internet Explorer Maintenance. It will then create favourites entries for everyone and add it to their own favourites menu.

    That does seem to be the way to go, although I was hoping for something which would be hands-off for IT Support. I might just stick a link to a shared Word document on their homepages, and staff can edit that as they see fit.

    I know what you mean, and is why I like the student way of doing it as staff can just dump url files into it.

    A compromise of sorts is to add an lnk shortcut to the shared favourites to user's own favourites folder, so it appears in their Favourites menu. The only problem is you get a warning pop up when you click on it in IE. Pros and cons for everything it seems!!!!!!
