In Windows Server, is there a way to have certain tasks be performed ever time a new user is created? Basically, I would like a way to change the default groups and create a windows share every time a user is created.

I am using SBS 2011 Essentials, but whatever works in 2008 R2 should most likely work in SBS 2011.

You could whip something up with Powershell that would do that for you. Take a look on the Scripting Repository first though, someone else has probably done this already.
