How could I make the program boot up BEFORE the start menu and desktop icons and wait for the program to close before loading the desktop icons and start menu?

Are you talking about a Windows platform? If so, I'm sure the solution is messy. ;)

Linux and other Unicies are so much easier. ;)

I don't think you can do that in Windows. It represents a major security hole. A programmer could take over your machine and present a phony desk top thereby allowing access to all your keystrokes, passwords, etc.

Hmm...Maybe this is the reason he wants to create such a program. As far as I know weaknessforcats is right. You can't do this.

The explorer shell can be replaced with an entirly different desktop shell. My brother uses one that is patterened after the MacX (AfterStep?), so it is not exactly a security hole (though that is an interesting thought).
