The point is that Windows95 should have a way to turn off all of this
"local login" nonsense. It's approach of attempting to keep 2 sets of
files synchronised is a complete kludge. And rather pointless, it's
quite possible to have the start menu on a network drive, even on a
mapping which points to a network drive. However MicroSoft also "broke"
regedit so that it will not work correctly in a login script. What
it does is put up a check box to say it's changed the registary then
waits for the user to click the OK button.
