Put a shortcut to it in the startup folder, or put an entry in the Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run/ registry key.

Generally you'd tell your installer to do this though, since there's a few issues with doing this yourself, and it requires administrator privileges.

Why do you want to do this? Why not just let the installer or user do it?

I'm making a little program that i want to run in background every time windows starts. I want it to find and delete all temporary files in a given directory. The files will be deleted according every 500 ms or 1 second, i'll see that suites best without slowing down the pc. Anyway, it's just a learning exercise, and i think it would be cool to make this kind of thing.
