I look after a school network of about 20 PCs win 98/ win 95 hooked up to a NT4 server on a domain I inherited a setup supplied by a PC company that the school was not happy with. All the PCs have a lock down setting within their profile and the logon script is straightforward except for a line that includes 2 .exe's runonce.exe and hidedrivec.exe with a filename between the two which looks like a folder name. runonce.exe temp2 hidedrivec.exe 14 I've been racking my brains trying to find a way of logging on to the workstations locally but there is something running on the PCs that prevent me using the esc key at the logon screen. There are a couple of PCs that need repairing with new motherboards but in order to get them back onto the network I need to logon locally so that I can set up the network drivers etc. without reformatting the hard drive It looks as if the pc supplier has crippled the local logon so as to make it impossible for the school to fix their own PCs I rang up the pc supplier and they said it was too difficult to tell me how to logon locally. Can anyone help please?
