@jscott: He's a developer ;) – GregD: At least that part of my question was useful :D

I see what your saying GregD but yes I expect to manage other aspects eventually - and try to spread the use of group policies in this way to other teams/purposes, @jscott: consistency is EXACTLY what we want - I should have probably put that in the question, which isn't worded very well sorry again about that GregD! :)

Hi GregD - yeah I have written that it's our development environment but I have being using that term to mean the whole set-up we use - as in internal software development. My mistake sorry, we're not a very large company and these concepts aren't approached in the right way at all which is why I'm trying to do my bit, change from below if you know what I mean, cheers

Yeah, sorry I wasn't very clear - I have had this on my mind for a while and just jumped straight in when the beta occurred. I've added more detail to joshunts answer comments.

The situation is that it will need to be run for only certain users in Active Directory - hopefully they will be in specific OU's and if they are not then I'll put them there! So my approach has been from a Logon Script applied to Groups angle - I didn't want to use the StartUp folder or the registry so that the users that have the screen popped up can easily be managed though Active Directory. Hope that makes more sense!
