Windows 7: TrueCrypt Problems

TrueCrypt Problems

Please help, I'm going nuts. Doing a new installation of friends computer using Win7 Pro 64bit. We use TrueCrypt to protect her data folder (confidential customer data) in case of theft. In XP, I had a simple batch file in the startup folder that 1) launched the truecrypt drive (she entered password) and made it drive X, and 2) and used the net stop server, net start browser, net start server commands so that Windows would map the drive again (so her laptop could sync to it, requiring a set mapped address). This is so she doesn't have to remap it everytime she logs in.

I'm able to use the scheduler to do the Truecrypt part, but NOTHING I've tried (or found online) is letting me automatically run the net stop/start stuff after. I've tried seperart batch files, calling batch files, runas command. [[pretty sure this has to doing with running commands requiring admin rights (she's the admin!!), but no tricks are working]] I'm not even close to being an expert on this part, and would love any help. Having the net stuff run a minute after log on would be fine, having it run right after she enters the Truecrypt stuff even better. Thanks for any help folks!!

Thanks, but had already seen that. Still no go. Seems weird that you can drop so many programs into the startup folder, but write a simple bat file and no go.
