I would like to always have the task manager running when ever I start my PC. I try to add it by selecting C:\WINNT\system32/tasgmgr.exe from Start->Settings->Task Bar & Start Menu, but it won't start automatically.

First got to the C:\WINNT\system32 folder right click on tasgmgr.exe and then select Create Shortcut. Then drag that shortcut to Start > Programs > Startup

or in Explorer drag it to C:\Documents and Settings\Your Profile\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
