I'm thinking of taking the approach of creating a "version tag" file in the 
windows system folder. If the "version" on the machine is different than 
the version of the startup script (since I don't change it all that often) 
I'll just pop up a warning message and force a log off of the account... 
that way if I install any software... or change any registry settings it 
will be good to go.

It's a little brute force but heck I figure it should work... unless you do 
find some hidden API call to force a re-read of the registry.

I'll be waiting patiently... :)
