To make this work, you have to mess with your registry. If you mess up your computer, I will not be held liable for any damage!!!!! So open regedit. Start\Run\Regedit . Now the hard part! You're in Registry Editor! Go HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\winlogon. Now just click on winlogon folder you should see a bunch of entries.

Step 4: Make it do your bidding
