Hi All,

The first time a user logs on to Windows XP the startmenu will pop-up.
We don't want this.
So during the "custom setup" after the windows setup I've made a script which will press ctrl+esc

' Close the StartMenu
oShell.SendKeys Chr(94) & "{ESC}"

Works great when installing Windows XP SP1
But, When installing WinXPSP2 it won't work anymore. (Could be a timing issue...)

I'm sure there must be a regkey which I can set to disable this first startmenu pop-up.
The second time a user logs on the startmenu wil not pop-up so a value must be set at that time.

Off course I can monitor with regmon, but this will give me to much output…..

Try importing this via the CMDLINES.TXT file. By making changes to the Current User Hive during the GUI Setup, the changes will carry over to the Default User Hive. Therefore your changes will be the same for all users
