    some progs require you to be there and enter instructions.
    otherwise, yes.
    do it through 'start up'

    start, programs, StartUp

    If you look in the program's control panel, there is probably a 'start at boot' option in it's settings. Try that.

    If you want a program like your mail,
    to come up after you have switched on,
    and come back with a cup of tea,
    then you will need a small program like 'Dunce'
    to deal with all the 'enter' clicks while you're away.

    thankyou. it's the software for my keyboard. It has buttons for opening email programme, explorer, messenger etc but they only work once it's activated. It used to start with windows but when I reinstalled it recently didn't and wanted to get it doing so again. Hav eput it in start up and will see if that works :)
