    Make a Program run @ startup


    How do I make any program start automatically when the computer is powered up and Vista is loaded? There is a program that my computer came with that always started up automatically, but for a while I didn't want it, so I went in to the msconfig utility and chose not to have it run on startup.

    Now I want it back, and I reselected it in msconfig, but it won't start automatically now. I had to make a shortcut on the desktop and manually run it.

    How do I make a program run on startup?

    thanks

    There should be a setting in the program for that. What program?

    Drag it to the start up folder.
