I would like to use a login script to automatically dial the ISP when I log on to Windows 2000. If possible, I would like to bypass the CTRL+ALT+DEL to automatically login and connect to the Internet. Is this possible? And if so, how?
You can auto-logon to Windows 2000 by editing the Registry and setting three values in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon key to:
DefaultUserName (Value: REG_SZ) = your W2K username DefaultPassword (Value: REG_SZ) = your W2K password AutoAdminLogon...

(Value: REG_SZ) = 1
Then, create a shortcut to your dial-out connection and place it in the Startup folder of your Start menu. That way, when you boot your system, you will be auto-logged into W2K and then as your profile loads your ISP connection will be dialed.
