I have search all over the internet and made many posts on different forums for weeks and now i am here, I am looking for a way to stop the explorer.exe process from starting after login maybe with a batch file so it can be automated.
I am using winxp pro vlk edition sp2 updated. I have tried tskill, taskkill and autoruns but none seem to work. let be break them down:
tskill will only kill process and allow it to restart ( explorer restarts its self )
taskkill: this will not work its gives an error: "no such interface supported" (I tried to search for this error with no luck)
taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
Using the pid switch will not work because explorer will use a different pid every time its restarts.
autoruns: this just don't do crap for me (explorer.exe only tested)
Anyway, I would appreciate any help from anyone. I must say that taskkill, using the code above WORKS on ever other computer i have tried it on except this one. So i would seem there is a problem with this computer.
Now, this is a new install of windows all updated and no other programs installed, I need get this computer ready so as to create a master image for deployment to 250+ computers within a school.
