    Question Application Utilization on Win PC

    I am interested in making an application utilization tool on Win PC (to begin with). This would include the logs of all applicatipons used by user right from boot up.

    Does such a tool exist? Please let me kno if it does..

    Any suggestions in implementing / approaching the problem ?

    If you're using XP, you might investigate bootvis .

    Determining what is being launched at boot time is going to involve interaction with the OS, and may not be that easy for you as a beginner.

    There are various places that Windows stores information for which programs to run at start up, eg the registry, the startup folder, and a couple of other places I think. Try a google search and you should be able to find them all listed somewhere. However, this is only a list of things Windows will try to start, not what it actually started, so it's going to depend on what you want.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
