[REQUEST] CMD on Startup

I was wondering if somebody could write a script that automatically runs CMD on startup (IE at the login screen)? Thanks.

OS: Windows 7 Enterprise

I meant running it before logging in.

Running CMD on the screen where you choose which user to login as.

No, before logging in. On the screen where you choose which user you want to login as.

In reply to: Not that.

While I've only written code for Windows since 3.0 and early NT days, a script or command won't run unless there's an account for it to log into.

Maybe you need to reveal what you want to do in more detail.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
