VB6--... Make a SIMPLE ".exe" to visit a web page.
We are looking for an executable (.exe) that simply visits a specific web page, posts a 'success' message, then closes... It is that simple.
We will have the users put this exe file in the 'auto start' folder of windows, so it would auto-execute every time the pc starts/reboots.
When executed, the script will simply visit a web site - (fyi, the web site will log that the PC power cycled by reading the PC's cookie.)
If the script successfully visits to that site, it would present the user with a nice/clean small (1"x2"appx) screen message... like ... "visit to [url removed, login to view] successful" for 2-3sec, play nice tone(s)) and close the program. This exe program would then close anything it had opened then self close. It is not necessary to record anything in the event.
If the exe cannot visit the site, it will indicate as such and the reason...(no internet, URL not responding.. etc) -for 3-5 sec, play a different tone(s), then close.
This exe file should be easily deleted from the PC without residual code removal necessary... Nothing fancy... Keep it simple please
The code should be well commentated for each line/routine.
We will want the final operational source code and the assembled .exe code.
With the final source code we should be able to make <minor> code modifications ourselves and generate a new .exe (we may want to alter the size/position/color of the small message screen and also the duration time, message as well as the visited site's URL.)
Any questions or suggestions would be appreciated... VB6(preferred) - May consider C/C++
We look forward to your comments.

I have many auto-start methods, it is up to you which one is used :). There also many ways in making the site be launched, etc, which browser chosen, what API used.
