Specs: Windows XP, na
I have configured my Windows XP registry to run an executable other than Explorer upon login to a particular user account.

My application is started no problem when the appropriate login is selected, but Windows continues to display the 'loading your personal settings' screen for approximately 30 seconds, having started my application, and the user misses a bunch of startup screens from my application.

I have noticed that if I do a CTRL+ALT+DEL at anytime during the 'loading your personal settings' screen the screen immediately goes away and the application is displayed fine (along with the task manager which I then close).

Is there something I can look at programmatically that defines when the 'loading your personal settings' has finished?

Alternatively is it possible to programatically generate a CTRL_ALT_DEL?

Your best bet might be to look at open source projects which aim to replace Explorer, like liteStep.
