I want windows XP to auto login with a spacific user with a spcacific application only on startup. I have made following changes in the registry to achive this. But after auto login if a user press Ctrl+Alt+Del, He can Open explorer.exe and can run any application whcih a ristriced user can. I want that user to restirect only for the application (Notepad) which opened after autologin.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\system.ini\boot]

"Shell"="USR:Software\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\Winlogon"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]


1. User Power on the machine
2. windows Autologin and notpad starts
3. If user press ctrl+alt+del. taskmanager opened and user can start explorer.exe
I want to restrict that user to open taskmanager. I also want windwos Xp administrator to login in safemode to chage the startup settigs if in case of application failure to check the problem.

In Short. I want my application only to run on startup for the User (Auto Login) with shutdown and restart options. and a way to login with administratior to change the system settings.
