    Hello can anyone tell me how to add a prorgam to the startup list??? The list when you click on START\RUN\ Type in msconfig when the window comes up "system configuration utility"
    Click on the tab startup... How do I put a program into that list so that the program will run when my computer boots up???

    The simplest method would be to create a shortcut for it and add the shortcut to the Startup folder in the Start Menu.

    The way I do it is simply to right click on the exe and select "Send to" > desktop as shortcut; then right click on the shortcut and copy it. Then right click on the startup folder in the Start > Programs menu and select "paste". You can delete the desktop shortcut after it is copy/pasted.
