    I'm currently trying to make a startup/log-on program to replace the default Windows 7 one and I need some help as I have never written a program in my life. :redface2:  Here's what I'm trying to do:
    [​IMG]
    I want the text to come onscreen in a typewriter fashion. Then I want it to (after the enter/return button is pressed) see if the username entered matches with a user on the computer, if it doesn't, then it will just erase the text, same goes for the password. Any ideas what program I could use and how on Earth to script it?

    You've never written a line of code, but you want to code to modify Windows? Good luck with that. You should look in Window Blinds or something along those lines.

    Do you want it to REALLY log in, or just to LOOK like that? If so, it'd be much easier to make a Power Point (or similar) video and just key that into the start up process...

    Either way. A powerpoint/video thing would be cool though. (and easier)

    Coding anything into the startup process is going to be a challenge.

    Still easier than changing it completely, right?

    Not necessarily. Think about how complex the code in an operating system is. Now try screwing with it. As I said above, yeah, have fun with that.
