Getting my batch file to work?

I'm trying to set up a computer for my son. I've got it so instead of launching Windows Explorer, it instead silently loads up a batch file. My problem is working with the darn thing, and getting it to do what I want. Long story short, I want Steam Bit Picture Mode, the VoIP software Mumble, and, if I can, some form of Google Hangouts to load up on computer launch. My current batch file is included after the break. [more inside]

How to save create a Photoshop action to that saves files to server

Previously we used a Photoshop cs5 Action to save images that were already on our Windows file server to another folder on the server. We got a new server. The Action now longer works, seemingly because the path is different, though the drive letter is the same. I've attempted to record a new Action, following the steps in the old Action, but there's a problem. The new action records the name of the file, so all new files saves with that Action are saves names of the file used to record the action. The original action did not save the name of the file used when recording the action. We would like the new action to do what the old Action did How can I get Photoshop to record this action and not save the name of the file, so it can be used by multiple people on different Windows 7 machines?

How does one convert hundreds of multiple page PDFS (of varying page sizes per PDF and varying total page count), so that only a single jpeg is saved of the first page of each PDF, with the original file name intact. I have access to Photoshop CS 5 (not 5.5) and IrfanView 4.

Help me batch print text files on the Mac

OS X: I want to batch print all the files in a source-code library. They are actionscript files, which means they are text files that all end in a .as extension. The files are in a complex directory structure (one root folder but files in multiple subfolders), and there are non .as files that I don't want printed. When the files print, I need some kind of separator ( spaces, asterisks, new page...) between each file. [more inside]
