MelissaCandyGirl,
I am afraid that you are going to have to live with having your app come up automatically when the boot process has completed.  
In ordder to have it initialized at the kernel level, you would probably need to alter the processes at the chip level.  In order to alter the processes so that you could have it initialized at the boot level, you would have to play at approximately the same level.  
What is wrong with adding it to the Autoexec.bat so that it immediately starts up upon completion of the boot sequence?

Autoexec.bat not serve because I have to start my program before the boot at least.
My program is checking for malicious files and deletes them! It is not feasible try to delete 1 file that is injected in the process (system, winlogon.exe, explorer.exe and more ...). The only way to delete them is before the boot.

The best you are going to do, unless you are running Windows 3.X and DOS, is start your application as a service or make your application a service.

If you are using old Windows, then you could load stuff up a boot time in the config.sys file and autoexec.bat. Windows NT operating systems just don't handle stuff set in those files like Win 3.X.

It might be easier in WIndows 95, 98 and Me as they were built upon a DOS core or kernel.

Thee are a lot of Q here on EE on writing services and a lot of tutorials on the web.

you need to add windows zone to attract attention of windows kernel programmers.
without them you'll have no luck

it is possible, i don't know exactly how, but i see many virus scanners do this too.
the windows experts should know how.
