registry and internet
Posted on 2000-03-24
I have some questions if any experts can help me out.
I writing a program to detect and do a certain thing when user log on the internet.
First, I want to have a function that allow my program to automatically, hiddenly starts when windows starts. It just like putting my program in the startup folder but I dont want to do so. I think there is a way by adding it to the registry. I want to be able to enable and disable the start up option at choice by running my program. By the way, I dont want it to show its icon at the lower end of the windows where the clock appear, neither is on the task menu[ctr-alt-del]. But I want a tricky way to access to my program so no other users would be able to access to the program but me.
Second, how do I detect when user go to the internet. The user would use dial-up to connect to the internet. I noticed when user connect to the internet, a small two-lights computer appear at the bottom left of the screen.
I will accept the most complete and helpful comments as answer.
