Windows logoff script (logoff.bat)

This is just a quick post to let you see a simple batch script I have written that I run everytime I log out of my work PC.  It's very simple, just cleans up a few things, the script is fully documented, but if anything isn't clear then please feel free to ask.

There a python script that is called, this is a new addition which goes through and compresses all of my putty session logs, I have a seperate log for each of my PuTTY server connections, depending on what I am doing they can grow quite large, so the script compresses and date stamps them.  I can post the python script if you would like to see it.
