I doubt it has much to do with eset, and everything to do with all of Cisco's software that colleges use to make you log in to the network sucking eggs. The easiest thing to do in XP (which is what I assume to be the main OS you're using based on the screen shot) is to either make the login page your homepage or add a short cut to it on your desktop. You should be able to just drag and drop the link from your favorites/bookmarks to the desktop.
