    Does anyone have any idea how I can use Windows Scheduler to auto import a reg file I have every time I login? My icons get screwed up every once and a while, so Phantom created the below file for me. I'd like to have it auto-import so I don't have to worry about it.

    This command is not working:
    C:\WINDOWS\regedit.exe /s REG IMPORT D:\Stuff\Misc\Reg Fixes\exefile.reg

    I have never personally tried this, but it would seem logical that a .reg file placed into the STARTUP folder would run

    Doing that will only open the reg file in notepad, or the default viewer. It will not import the entries.
