You could add the program to the Run section of the registry.

For all users:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"Messenger"="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Windows Live\\Messenger\\msnmsgr.exe\""
For individual users:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"Messenger"="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Windows Live\\Messenger\\msnmsgr.exe\""
