    If your login page accepts _GET variables, you can make a .lnk file in widows that links to:
    Code:
    yourdomain.com/login.php?user=username&pass=password
    However, this is very insecure, and anyone with access to his computer could get the password straight out of the link.

    You could also utilize cookies so they only have to log in once.
