    This is a question more involved with security than DHTML. This is not possible
    unless you are creating cookies (which are essentially text based files)
    on the client. There are good reasons why browsers do not support such activity
    through scripting. This is possible however if they download vbscript and
    run it on their machine (separate from the page).
