Why? This is a suspicious activity, so we need a good reason before helping you with it.

Why does it need to be before logon?

Yeah, that's indeed a suspicious activity ...

Good question, it's much easier to implement if it's after the logon process :) ...

Its really a suspicious activity .
But you could read a bit about registry , at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial44.html .
There are some pathes that start with windows before login or after .
You'l just need to add your exe file (or dll/sys file in some cases) to it start before login.

Go hard core. Write a bootloader to load your program with the proper drivers, download, clean up, goto real OS.
