    try changing that to an L and then as I'm assuming it si trying to do a shutdown with log off?

    this will be a very useful thing when it works as you can have program spesific users on the domain (ie for exam software and programs like sucess maker).

    Is it possible to put up the full code of it working if/when it is please?

    Although this thread is long since dead I may have come up with a way to make the shell mode work properly and so thought I would add it for refference.

    It turns out that as part of XP SP2 they added something called shell protection mode to increase security. This restricts the shell applications access to a certain small subset of folders and files. This can be disabled in the local group policy on the computer by going to:

    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Explorer : Turn off shell protocol protected mode

    Hopefully this will work and act as a refference for anyone who might be trying this kind of thing in future.
