Default Password Manager

Does anyone know how to simulate a password manager, possibly something that would record keystrokes and store that information somewhere? What I would want is something that would use the windows login and based on that open other programs with the user name and password already entered.

I have users that are have problems remembering all of their usernames/passwords and would like to simplify that for them. I realize that it would need to be secure and I could probably manage that but I am not sure where to start for the rest.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

What are you using for a database back end?

Use windows authentication for security. Then you do not have to give users a user name and password.
Also, create roles to manage security. In the long run both of these will aleviate a lot of headaches and give you a more secure app.

OK,

Maybe I didn't make myself clear. If I wrote the programs that I want to open, I would use Windows authentication. I want to be able to open programs written by other vendors that use username/passwords. I want to have the user enter their information once and record it somewhere. Then, when they launch Windows, those applications will automatically launch with the stored username/password for that application (those username/passwords are different for each application and they are not the same as the Windows username/password).

Hope this clears it up a little more. Thanks in advance.
