    Please can anyone tell me why the command prompt window does'nt close at the end.
    This is my script
    Cls
    @ECHO OFF
    :Start
    ECHO Do you wish to logout?
    set /p answer=Enter Y or N:
    if /i {%answer%}=={n} goto :Stay
    if /i {%answer%}=={y} goto :Continue
    cls
    goto :Start
    :Continue
    TASKKILL /IM "EXPLORER.EXE" /F
    cls
    NET USE \\DISKSTATION /DELETE
    cls

    ...Hope this might help. Seems you forgot the ":Stay" - bit...i would suggest leave the "Explorer" entry... :)


    @ECHO OFF
    cls

    :Start
    ECHO Do you wish to logout?
    set /p answer=Enter y or n:
    if /i {%answer%}=={n} goto :Stay
    if /i {%answer%}=={y} goto :Continue

    :Stay
    goto :Start

    :Continue
    cls
    NET USE \\DISKSTATION /DELETE
    cls

    :END
    EXIT

    Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately I need to forcefully close the opened explorer window so the network connection can be successfully deleted. Do you have any suggestions how to do that???
