    Help with simple timed image show program

    Sorry to bother you great people but i need some help.
    I have looked everywhere for days now and cant find what im looking for.
    I am after a program to basically start when windows starts and shows an image (logo) and for a certain time till a program starts and has fully loaded so noone sees the desktop.
    I have looked at shelling but it still shows the intro screen of the software.

    The app / program will basically have 3 functions,perhaps have a file in a folder called pic.jpg which the program looks for, i can add a time in seconds to a ini file and the program should always be ontop and not let any other program show in front of hit.
    Im thinking this should be a simple thing to do if someone could assist.

    thanks in advance

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
