I want to secure my Win98 using a program that I have written myself. My program provides complete security but all that is left is to make it run as the first program at the startup i.e. prior to running any other windows program (even before the taskbar or desktop icons are loaded)
The program asks for user name and password and validates it against a list to grant access. It is written in VB6. please tell me how to load it first? The registry key "RUN" doesn't make the it run "first" however; the program does load at startup... but not as the first program. :(
[boot] shell=myprog.exe ... and then my vb prog calling shell (explorer.exe)
I tried that and the program started first, a success! but not so fast there... ;) One prob. calling shell(explorer.exe) only opened an explorer window. Wht abt the tasbkar and desktop icons? They weren't loaded.
