I'm running XP Pro SP2

What I want is to run a batch command on guest logon, to display a message.
It's just a simple batch file,

@echo off
echo Message
pause
but I'm having trouble with the Windows scheduling. How would I schedule a task to run on guest logon? If someone could tell me what settings to use, it would be awesome.

Cheers,

roddy
