Windows 7: How do I run a program at startup without using an admin password?

How do I run a program at startup without using an admin password?

I have a minor technical question I would love help on. I have the UAC on and log in as a standard user for protection. There are a few programs that I would like to run automatically when windows starts that require a password EVERY time I start windows, or if I select them manually. Is there any reason certain programs due to their permissions need an admin password to run and other dont? I could not find the difference looking in the security section of properties compairing it with a program that runs as an admin. HELP! I would like to run these programs automatically as windows boots without typing in the admin password for each program. I thank you in advance for your help!

Hello Mr.Ubiquitous,

You could create a task in Task scheduler to run a program at startup with highest privileges for all users instead.
