Put it in the all users startup folder is the easiest...

Here is another ways too that a little sleeker.

Hi,
Just add BGINFO to your starup folder for ALL USERS.  Place the BgInfo.exe and the logon.bgi in the C:\windows\system32\bginfo\ directory

Then open Regedit or Regedt32.
Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \Run
Make a new String value (REG_SZ) and name it BgInfo.

In the Value Data: C:\windows\system32\bginfo\BgInfo.exe C:\windows\system32\bginfo\logon.bgi /TIMER:0

Cheers,
