Is there a way to keep a log of Windows Logon in Domain enviroment in vb.net? This will be for the entire company. Their user name and time they logon will be store in MS-SQL.  Is this a possible thing to do? I want to know where to read it from. I can read from logon event, but that is way to much. I don't really need to see the code right now. Any thoughts for you, Experts ?

You could read the security logs of your domain controllers.

Logon script which enters the username into a DB perhaps?
String user = SystemInformation.UserName

Create a program that will capture the username of the log person.
Then run the program everytime the user login.

JackOfPH,
That is what I am trying to do.   Lets say, when they hit "Ctrl, Alt, Delete" to log in, is there are way to capture it? And how about the idle time?

Sorry for my earlier comment as I thought you wanted to burn logs from servers to database.

The other two suggestions are based on using Active Directory login scripts to trigger your .NET code; however, it sounds like you want this to fire even on the unlock which doesn't re-run login script.  

For the idle time, it would not matter in the former solution as it triggers on login and optionally logout, but not in between.
