My Operating System Info: OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600 I am can not get the following to work. I have created a directory named "Shutdown" in the following path: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Start Menu\Programs\Shutdown I placed a "Shortcut" in the "Shutdown" directory that executes a program to lower the Speaker Volume to a low volume. I know that this works, because when I run the shortcut and I have the speaker volume set to high it does get set back to a low setting. I read that any "Shortcut" placed in the "Shutdown" directory would be executed prior the actual Shutdown of my PC... Any suggestions??
