We need a couple of scripts to carry out two seperate tasks. Since we use Windows XP I guess the best way to do it would be in VB or vbscript. vbscript is my preference since it doesn't need to be compiled. If it has to be done in VB or VB.NET it will need to be compiled on our system so that we have the source code and can tweak it later if necessary.
The tasks that need to be done are as follows:-
1. script to log in with a username and password and click a submit button on a website.
2. script to visit a website and if the word 'error' is contained on the page set a boulean value to true and if the word 'error' is not contained on the page set a boulean value to false.
