    In Windows 7 Professional and above go to Start -> Search -> gpedit.msc

    Navigate to Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Scripts (Startup/Shutdown)

    From here, you can use GPO scripts to accomplish what you are getting at. However, Task Scheduler would be a lot easier.

    Use this important resource: Scripting for Group Policy
