I believe I get it now! I put those 2 statements into the [global] section 
(using my own logon path) and the logon procedure as wellas the logout went 
MUCH faster and did not show the window with files being copied. Thank you

programs how to find the files if I move them out of my 'profiles' 
directories :-)
