Create a new String Value called DefaultPassword

Check for the existence of a REG_SZ called DefaultUserName. The value should reflect the user who you wish to logon automatically. If this value does not exist, then right-click in the right pane, New, REG_SZ, name it, DefaultUserName. Set the string value to the required UserName.
Optional Item: If your Vista Machine has joined a domain, then create a String Value called DefaultDomainName.

how to disable start menu from desktop


tell me exactly what you want to use this for.
Is it for a internet cafe? I will then be able to give you the best solution.
Using group policy you can take out options within the start menu but cannot remove it totally.
If you want your computer to only start up internet explorer as soon as you turn the computer on, then you will need to play around with the system registry to do that, in order to disable explorer from lunching.
Go to Start/Run/Regedit and navigate to this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Download readystate from microsoft and play around with that, a very cool tool.
