Make a Program run @ startup

#1
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

Drag it to the start up folder.
