Then you will have to setup the registry as per my second comment.

Got to this key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager

look for BootExecute on the right side and double click it and enter the following line

autocheck autochk /f *

If BootExecute isn't listed on the right side then right click on a Session Manager and then Select
New > Multi-Stirng value
Then on the right you will see New Value #1
Type in BootExecute and then double click on it and enter the line
autocheck autochk /f *

Open Notepad copy and paste the following into it. Save the file as autochk.reg then locate the file and double click on it. This will enter the line that I have mentioned





Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager]
"BootExecute"=hex(7):61,00,75,00,74,00,6f,00,63,00,68,00,65,00,63,00,6b,00,20,\
  00,61,00,75,00,74,00,6f,00,63,00,68,00,6b,00,20,00,2f,00,66,00,20,00,2a,00,\
  20,00,00,00,00,00
