Automatically click on 'Log In' Button on Web Page

Hello, I'm trying to find a way to automatically click on a button on a web page.
As the title says, it's the 'login' button.

Is there a way to activate web buttons with vbscript?

It really depends on the page.  What have you tried so far?  If nothing, look for InternetExplorer.Application

RE: Automatically click on 'Log In' Button on Web Page

I'm a bit of a noob and haven't tried anything so far.
I can see from the source code that the form does have an id

Here's a bit of the page code.

<body marginheight="0" marginwidth="0">
        <form name="Login" method="post" action="Login.aspx?cID=8666&amp;lng=en-US" id="Login">
<input type="hidden" name="__PageDirty" value="False" />
<input type="hidden" name="__PageDirtyMsg" value="Changes have been made but not saved.\nYour changes will be lost if you continue.\n\nDo you wish to continue?" />
<input type="hidden" name="__EVENTTARGET" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="__EVENTARGUMENT" value="" />
