Logging all unhandled ASP.NET C# exceptions

This is probably quite easy; does anyone know how I can log all unhandled exceptions on my ASP.NET application to a database? Ie, for any unhandled exception, call LogException(Exception e) and then divert user to a page which says "The website has encountered an error - the administrator has been notified".

Yes indeed. The framework has just such a feature. To your solution right click and add a new item. Add a global.asax file. (I think the dialog calls it a global class file or something). In there you will see an
Applicaiton_Error event handler. Modify it like so, assumeing you have a LogException function:
        protected void Application_Error(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            LogException(Server.GetLastError());
            Server.ClearError();
            Server.Transfer("Default2.aspx");
 
        }
