Could you be specific with your question please?

Did you mean "User should be notified with the changes once they logon to Windows and you are trying to write program to achieve this task?"

I'm not understanding what you are asking. So you want to know if there is a way you can have a program run while your in the login screen? The computer doesn't execute programs unless there is a profile to run it on.

<application path="C:\Windows\System32\mspaint.exe">
  <start service_start="false" service_stop="false" logon="false" logoff="false" display_lock="true" display_unlock="false" />
  <stop service_start="false" service_stop="false" logon="false" logoff="false" display_lock="false" display_unlock="true" />
</application>

Is this what you mean?
This is what it says on the website for the C#
