Can I make an autorun computer with Encore?

I want to give my granddaughter an old computer filled with nothing but mpeg4 family videos; no programs, just videos. When she turns it on I want it to present her with a menu of her choices. It would be
similar to a DVD. If this works I have more grandchildren.

In Windows, if you add a shortcut to something to the 'startup' folder in the start menu, those items will play automatically when the user logs in. So you'll need to build a dvd or an interactive flash video, create a shortcut in that folder and make sure the software which will play it will start in full screen

Thanks Juan,

I knew it would be flash or html. I just wasn't sure how to do it. Still working on it.

I was hoping to replace the windows start up splash screen with a flash movie with buttons and links or even a html page with links.
