Default Need advice.

Hello. I am not a programmer, but I am a wanna be programmer. I wonder if anyone can tell me the best way to do this, or if it even can be done? I want to make a routine that will enable a computer, when first booted up, go to a specific web page, and copy specific files from there to a specific place on the hard drive of the local computer, overwriting any files of the same name. Any help on this will be greatly appreciated!

Default Re: Need advice.

it can easily be done, how does microsoft make windows boot up and run all those essential services and things like that ?

there are a few ways to do this, i prefer a batch file for something like this, and run it as a logon script for every user on your pc.

i cannot remember how to do it on windows xp which is not a member of active directory.

i am sure there are many guides on the internet to find this out though
