Use a setting in the registry like this:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\MyProgram = "c:\MyProgs\MyProg.EXE"

If you only want it to run once do this:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce\MyProgram = "c:\MyProgs\MyProg.EXE"

Cheers,

Raymond.
