Hi,
I'm trying to get a batch going for my first logon into windows 7...

I want to change some of the user-directories (Downloads and Documents only). And I need a command to reboot to safemode if possible.
Is there anyone out there that can help? I just can't break this nut :P

*I've figured that I need to edit the register in order to move those folders, but have no idea what part of the registery that should be edited*

cokesmoke, for the UserProfile, see this article and the KB pointed to in it. The value for the Download Directory is in the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer. These are for older versions of Windows, so don't know if they apply to W7 - suspect the IE one does. For the reboot into Safe Mode, I think you need to modify the boot.ini file. Open msconfig and look at the BOOT.INI tab and /SAFEBOOT check box. I would suggest you experiment (with a virtual machine, if possible) and see what happens when you check the box - suspect it changes the boot.ini file. Found all of this via Google. Enjoy, John.
