Can someone help me how to show a message to user just AFTER he/she
logon to the computer? (just the way we can show a message to user
BEFORE he/she logon, through the 'legal notice message' in registry).
I am using win xp pro and want to display a message to every user after
he logons to my computer. Can someone help me how to do this from
registry?

I am waiting for reply, and shall be very thankful.

Well, I suppose you could dig into the registry's startup section for all
users and toss a link to a text file in there and the text file would then
open when they logged in. Sounds almost rational to me. There's likely a
better way but that's the quick and easy way though I'm not sure that it
will open visable or if it will just show up in the task bar? Maybe a
maximize switch?
