How to use ShellRunAs in Startup Folder

Hello All-

I administer a Domain where I am the only Vista user.  I use the ShellRunAs app and love it!  It's exactly what I needed.  I do restart my machine daily and would like for a couple of programs to run automatically with different credentials.  Currently, once I get into Windows (Vista32), I right click on about 3 program's icons, choose the newly added "Run As Different User, type my admin credentials, then they load.  The easy answer would be to add these to the "Startup" folder or msconfig, but what switches do I need to put in the command line?

An example command line - let's say for iexpore.exe - would be great as well - Thanks!

Usage: shellrunas [/reg | [/quietreg ] | /regnetonly [/quiet] | unreg | [/netonly] <program> <arguments>
/reg              Registers ShellRunas shell context-menu entry
/regnetonly Registers Shell /netonly context-menu entry
                     Note: a command prompt will flash when the program starts
/unreg         Unregisters ShellRunas shell context-menu  entry
/quiet           Register or unregisters ShellRunas shell context-menu entry without
                     result dialog
/netonly         Use if specified credentials are for remote access only
<program>   Runs program with specified credentials and parameters
I believe ShellRunas does not accept parameters on the command-line for username and / or password.
