Windows 7: Elevated program shortcuts - effect on startup time

Elevated program shortcuts - effect on startup time

I've taken on board the message that Elevated Program Shortcuts are the only way to avoid UAC nagging you when using trusted programs. However, would I be correct in saying that each of these elevated shortcuts needs to be set up by the Task Scheduler when the PC boots up? At the moment I am revelling in the luxury of a PC that is up and running within a minute and I would hate to go back to the minutes it took with XP on my old PC. So, as I'm likely to have a number of programs that would need this treatment can you give me any idea how much they are likely to slow down start up? Also will they use any significant amount of resources after start up?

One final point. The setup of an elevated program shortcut seems extremely lengthy to say the least. Whilst googling I noticed at least one program that claims to automate the process - has anyone any experience of such programs.
