Shutdown script question

    I've recently been looking at implementing a script that runs just prior to
    PC shutdown, I have read this article:

    http://www.windows-help-central.com/windows-shutdown-script.html

    which states that "You can access network drives from startup and shutdown
    scripts. That's because startup scripts run after the computer initializes
    network connections and shutdown scripts run before the computer deletes
    network connections."

    Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be true as I definitely see the 'closing
    network connections' message appear before 'running shutdown script'
    message & as expected the script hasn't executed. I need network access as
    the script is on one of our servers, eventually I would like all users to
    run this script via a GPO if I can get it to work, does anyone have any
    ideas on how to get things to work as I want?

    TIA, Jase
