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... :)
