Windows 7: Speedfan will not start from the startup folder

Speedfan will not start from the startup folder

How do I get Speedfan to start at boot? I put it in the startup folder and nothing happens. I can start it up manually, but it does give me the bit 'do you want to let the following program make changes to your computer?'

Thank you so much! That worked great. It was pretty long and involved to setup, but worth the effort.

Which one did you go with? Just want to know if the other method worked.

Ah OK. At least we know one way works.

Added a 15 second delay to it starting, it was conflicting with Coretemp and sometimes either did not start or started and it was locked up. Delaying it fixed that problem.

I've also noted that after some windows updates you have to manually start it after a reboot.

Put a delay on it, works great! Since I did that it has not failed to start and run correctly. Before when it did start it would do one of 3 thing: 1) not start 2) start, but only half a window would show 3) work fine
