    Autostart folder, what is going on?

    Have I pressed some button I shouldŽnt have done?
    I have made a .bat file that I run to reset some usb devices I want reloaded after windows have loaded. If I run the bat file now it works, but if I paste a shortcut to the bat file in my autostart/startup folder all I get when windows boots is a notepad window showing the text in the bat file... whaaat?

    Typing "run" before the batfile doesnt help either so... eh?

    rename the .bat to .cmd

    also try:

    start c:\full path to.bat file

    Best way I think, will be placing the .bat under startup scripts in group policy.
