How to create a windows short-cut and place it in autostart-folder?
How to send key commands that simultates the user pressing tab or delete?
How to disable key commands from the user?

I wrote this enoying code that turns the screen black and on close starts another blackscreen so closing it will only open more blackscreens XD

Thanks in Pre-Advance.

//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
#include
#pragma hdrstop
#include "darkmain.h"

#pragma package(smart_init)
#pragma resource "*.dfm"
TForm1 *Form1;
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
__fastcall TForm1::TForm1(TComponent* Owner)
: TForm(Owner)
{
}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------

void __fastcall TForm1::FormClose(TObject *Sender, TCloseAction &Action)
{
Form1 = new TForm1(Application);
Form1->ShowModal();
}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
void __fastcall TForm1::FormMouseMove(TObject *Sender, TShiftState Shift,
int X, int Y)
{
SetCursorPos(10,10);
}

    why would you create a program that only shows a black screen?
    anyways to create a startup program you simply add your exe. as a task.

    Start -->Control Panel -->Scheduled Tasks and create a new task add your exe as a startup program.

    Nothing (I mean ABSOLUTLY nothing) can prevent a person from stoping this task. simply boot in safe mode and remove it from the starup programs.

    Honestly this is just an anoying thing harmless thing. Kinda like a trojan. So I'd wan't it the sent .exe file to add it self to the startup. Like msnmsgr does.

    I was thinking of using a shortcut and moving it to the autostart folder but I don't know what's written inside a shourtcut and what's it's extension.

    Found it using "shortcut windows api" in google.

    Ehum not solved how would it look like in C++?
    My Pascal is rather rusty. Also my Delphi Compiler is in C++ so it doesn't take Pascal codes.

    Why then did you ask it on the Delphi board and not one of the many C++ boards?
