Which version of Windows do you use ?

For W95 / 98 / Me, there's a registry key in 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Network\Logon] :

disable the Profiles.

You can use it by your logon script :

Create a file named disableprofiles.reg and type in the following lines 
 (repect the empty lines) :


Note that the file must be ended by 1 or 2 empty lines to be interpreted 
by regedit command.

Then place in your logon script (if you have one) the command :

regedit /s \\server\netlogon\disableprofiles.reg

This command will update the registry (you may need to restart the 

Hope this will help ;)
