I see the references to Startup/Shutdown and Logon/Logoff scripts, but
is that the only time a script can kick off?  Or does it periodically
refresh if new or changed?

We are trying to push out the DST patch to our 2k servers and had hoped
that a startup script GPO could do this.  It works fine if the machine
re-booted but I was hoping that if the machine is always left running
that the background refresh interval would kick in and the machine would
see a new GPO it had not executed, and bingo, the script would run.  So
far this has not happened.  It does not seem to run the script without
the re-boot.  Are scripts not part of the refresh processing?
