Did you follow this tutorial: Startup Programs - Change

Also, maybe there is a 'run when windows starts' option within the programs settings?

Edit: Here's another good tutorial... Task - Create to Run a Program at Startup and Log On

That program is a bit faulty. Try this instead;

Real Temp - CPU temperature monitoring

aren't they more or less the same?
I think I had both applications in the folder I downloaded, just that the one you mean refused to show my GPU Temp.
I realize that when I manually start the prog it requests admin rights - maybe that's why it won't start automatically...
