Startup scripts don't run during a background policy refresh...the machine actually has to be rebooted for them to execute. If you've already deployed the Group Policy Preference extensions, you can also use that to copy files.

All users have domain users rights. (no access to anything) I need a file copied over to c:\windows. I have added a start up script to the computer configurations but when I do a gpresult it does not apply. I have force a replication but it still does not seem to work.
