AutoRun

The registry is another option. To get there open the run dialog (Start->Run) and type ''regedit''. From there you will see a windows explorer type interface. From there go:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
From there add a new entry by right clicking on the right window and make a new string value. Choose a name (It doesn''t matter) Then double click on the string and type the absolute path of the program. Now it will run whatever program you specified at startup.

Just thought I''d also mention, all of the above comments only start the application when a user logs in. Not when windows starts. That can be a major difference. If you want the app to start before a user logs in, look into making a service. And look forward to pain you never knew possible
