    After Shutdown Software

    I'm looking for a piece of software that will be executed on shutdown.
    I would like the software to be able to run batch files on shutdown when i click on the shutdown button.

    I have a windows 7 64 bit home premium windows 7.
    Any software advice would be greatfull
    thanks

    What you need is a Logoff Script or a Shutdown Script (Google...) but since you have Home Premium you don't have the policy editor GPEDIT.MSC usually needed to set one up.

    See if this thread does anything for you. I can't vouch for it because I don't use Home Premium!
    Here's another one on Shutdown Scripts...

    I have approached this need by using a scripting program call AutoHotkey. This allows me to allocate a Windows key (I used Win-X) to shutdown. The AutoHotkey script associated with this key can first call the pre-shutdown software, then call the AutoHotkey Shutdown function.

    AutoHotkey is easy to use, and can provide a wide range of other useful functions.

    AutoHot Key has loads of potential that i could use. Thanks for recommending it to me.
    The only problem is that I'm having a hard trouble coding it.

    I'm trying to, when i press (Win-X) it will run a script batch.
    Or if i shutdown the script will run.

    If you could help that would be great.
