that sounds very unwise....
Sometimes, but rarely, you can create a shortcut

For example, lets say your username is joepublic, your password is password and the secure site is www.mysite.com.

Create a desktop shortcut to that site in the usual way then right click the shortcut icon, choose Properties, Internet Shortcut.

In the Target URL box change the http information from
http://www.mysite.com to http://joepublic:pas...@www.mysite.com and click Apply.

To visit the site, double click the shortcut (or in your case put it in your startup folder


This will work sometimes, but only if the site is not using advanced authetnication

you could also turn on the autocomplete and pasword functions in Ie...that way once the password is saved for that site...he just has to type the first couple of letters for the site...and it will bring up his name..then automatically put in a password
