    Newbish Q:

    I don't know much C++ yet; but I've been going through the tutorials on this site. Here's my question.. I want to make a program that will autostart when my computer loads [Windows 98], with a background picture, and a password. I'm not even sure where to start. If one of ya' pros out there would help me out, I'd really appreciate it.

    Do you mean installing windows? Or do you mean have a program that loads in your windows password?

    Sry I didn't make that too clear..

    I mean just a program that will run when windows starts up; where I can put a background picture in the program, and it asks me for a password to continue.

    Yes you can, but it one of those things that is a bit more work than I'm up to explaining right now.

    probably need to be a windows program, but then you'd have to disable ctl-alt-del while ur program is running
