That is what were discussing here, while there are a few ways of doing that, like applications like Ace Utilities will allow you to create startup entries in the registry and doing as Greg said and CreepinJesus have stated, the point of my first post was to show how to do it through the registry which is simple.

You create a "string" enter the "value" and click ok. It's that simple or you can edit what's already there from other programs.
