Hello Carl,

Yes, it sure is possible. Either tutorial below can show you how to. The first option is the easiest to use, but it will not work if the program has to run as administrator.


To just place a shortcut of the program into the "Startup" folder for a single or all users. See METHOD TWO.
Startup Programs - Change


To Create a task to run the program at startup or log on:
Task - Create to Run a Program at Startup and Log On


Hope this helps,
Shawn

No, what I want is the program to run once a day, and not every time I log on. Is this possible?

You can use Task Scheduler to run a program once a day and if you don't want it to run when you login, just be sure to remove it from any startup location.

Visit the following site for instructions on using Task Scheduler;

Well, you did say at log on, but what George posted should work for you for this.
