You can add it to the starup programs. Here is how:

1. Make a shortcut of this program on the desktop.
2. Press Start and type shell:startup, then press Enter
3. Drag the shortcut of your program into the folder that just opened
4. Close the folder

With the next boot, that program will start automatically.
