You can try creating a very basic .cmd file that contains this:
@echo off
goto again

Open in new window

Save the above to a file like c:\temp\startf50.cmd" and create a shortcut in Start->All Programs->Startup to this .cmd file.

For testing, I've put a pause line in, remove it if the script works.

Not sure about this particular executable but I would look at making it a Windows Service.

You can then configure the Service to restart automatically if it stops.

How to make an exe a service and how to configure a service steps are easily found with a simple Google search.
