You can use JNI.
Go toi www.javasoft.com and search JNI, there is a lot of documentation.
JNI allows you to implement 'native' method in Java classes.
Natvie means, they ar ein a shared .dll and as you know from .dll you can do whatever you want in the Windows system.

this is the way.

 Cheers.

P.S. You might want to also use Microsoft's extensions for Java. they allow some limited acces to the Win32 API.
