    Yes, it is. We have a link to a VBS file in the shared Start Menu's Startup folder.

    The VBS file contains:

    Code:
    Dim objShell
    Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    objShell.Run "iexplore.exe http://your-web-page-here.com"
    You can replace the last bit with

    Code:
    objShell.Run "POWERPNT.EXE s:\somefolder\powerpointfile.ppt"
    or whatever.

    Could you create gpo and link the students or year group to it.
    in the gpo - user configuration - administration templates - system - logon - run these programs at user logon

    then you can specify the file or files.

    I think this would work?
