Something in GSS is blocking logoff scripts

    I have a CMD script I run at each logoff. This is done by going into Group Policy and double clicking the Logoff entry under User Configuration | Windows Settings | Scripts (Logon/Logoff).

    The actual script I run is C:\WINDOWS\system32\GroupPolicy\User\Scripts\Logoff\logoff.cmd.

    This setup has worked fine for me for months. However, since installing GSS the other day, I see the following error in Event Viewer whenever I reboot:

    I assume that something in GSS, probably AppDefend, is blocking whatever process kicks off the CMD script. The problem is that, without a log being saved to disk, I have no idea what's really going on.

    Before I spend hours figuring out exactly what, can someone point me in the right direction?

    Ignore this for now... I'm going to try figuring it out.

    Would be nice if the Wilders admins would re-enable my real account so that I could edit posts and so on.

    I think I've got it solved. I added C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe and gave it permission to Start Applications. I've rebooted once, and no error appeared in Event Viewer.

    I wish this had been a default setting.

    Yes, sometimes I post first, and think afterward. Sorry. And it only took a minute to figure out. Well at least there's a reference here for anyone else who needs it...

    But I still wish they'd re-enable my forum account.

    BTW, Jason, if you would like a reference (to justify giving userinit.exe permission to launch applications by default), here is where I got my info:

    Which of course means that userinit.exe needs to be able to launch cmd.exe.

    Thanks meargh,

    I will update the default ruleset to reflect this. :)
