Another issue that concerns me is I assume the script you want to run at log in would contain a cleartext version
of the local administrator password. It's generally not good practice to have files containing this type of data reside on workstations for any length of time. If you need to distribute the script to multiple workstations, you should do so from a centralized workstation once and then remove the file yourself.
