Are you ready to messup with your registry?
Create a system restore point before that

Create a shortcut and put it in:

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

or

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.

Hi stantley,

Thanks for your advice.

I suppose the first path is only for a particular user?
