Yes..

U can use TweakUI to enable AutoAdminLogon .

U wouldnt need any key combination.. the machine would just log in as the account u specify on TweakUI

You mean like a password?

What is a keyboard other than a series of buttons you are pushing?

Do you mean like on screen display of a "keypad" that the user has to point and click?

And you don't even need TweakUI to accomplish the AutoLogon feature either. I believe you can do that with GPO in windows.

You can also use "Autologon for Windows"  (Works perfectly with Windows 200, XP, 2003)

keyboard hooks cannot trap Ctrl+Alt+Del sequence! Why? Because the OS never sends this key combination to the keyboard hook chain. It is handled at a different level in the OS and is never sent to applications. So, how can we trap the Ctrl+Alt+Del key combination?
Ctrl+Alt+Del
There are several ways to disable this key combination:
Disable Task Manager. This doesn't trap the key combination, it simply disables the application (Task Manager) that pops up when this key combination is pressed. See below how to do this.
Trap the keys using a keyboard device driver. For this, you need the DDK installed. I will not describe this method here.
Write a GINA stub. GINA is the DLL that Winlogon uses to perform user authentication. I'm not going to discuss this method here, but you can find out how to do it here [16].
Subclass the SAS window of the Winlogon process. For this, you must inject code into the Winlogon process and then subclass its Window Procedure. Two techniques for doing this are described later.

Isn't a password a combination of keys?
What are you trying to achieve exactly?
