Hi willpwilliams ,
As i understand , you would like a program to start up and get minimized simultaneouly when you PC boots up. However Windows 7 does not have any default program to perform that particular function of minimizing a start up item to the system tray.
There are certain 3rd party software that will perform the said function, which are easily available on the internet. We recommend you do some research work on the compatibility of such programs with windows 7 64 bit first before you install it.
