Hi, I use a utility program for keeping track of my internet time. It resides in the system tray and while not in use, takes of quite some memory. It only has to run when IE4 is running. I want to remove it from the systray. How can i have this program start automatically when i start IE4 (or any other internet application for that matter) ?

Check to see if the utility has that option in its setup.  You could also write a batch file to do the same thing, and assign IE4's icon to the file so that nothing would look different on the desktop.

Hi,

   Go to this URL and download a freeware called BatchRun.  It will solve your problem with this nifty little piece of software.

Dankh. This is great, especially for someone who does not know batchfiles! Have installed it all and don't need to put the application in the systray anymore, taking up valuable memory. Thanks!
