How to add program to startup

I have a small exe that I'd like to start when WinServer 2008 starts.  In C:\Users, I several uses including default user and myuser.  Both have a lock on their folder and I cannot open the Start Menu in either.  I am an admin on this box.

Do I need to use some other folder?
