    Add Start-up program

    How can I add a program to the Start-Up process. Can't seem to find the
    location.

    Click the "Start" button, Click "All Programs" then right click the
    "Startup" folder.

    Notice one of the options is "Open All Users".

    Select it, and try putting the shortcut to the program you want to run for
    all users there.

    Go to C:\Users\User_name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start
    Menu\Programs\Startup

    If you don't see it, make sure that hidden files are turned on.

    Neither suggestion worked. Either 'Paste' was grayed out or wasn't listed
    as an option. They sure don't make it easy.

    Something is blocking that, I just tried the same procedure my self and I am
    able to paste whatever program I want there. What type of program or try to
    add to the Startup folder?

    Re: Add Start-up program

    Sorry, I don't understand.
    1. The Paste functions are grayed out
    2. Paste 'just fine'? I don't understand 'just fine' and 'my startup
    program'.
    Could you elaborate?

    Are you logged on as an administrator? If not, do so and try again.

    It might be a security program blocking the Registry change it needs to
    make. A few, but not all, of the programs now doing this are:
    Ad-aware's Ad-Watch
    IBM Access Connections
    McAfee VirusScan and/or Antispyware
    Norton AV
    Spyware Blaster
    Spybot> Tools> IE Tweaks
    Spybot- Teatimer
    Spysweeper
    Spyware Doctor
    Windows Defender
    Zone Alarm (free) 6.5 Reported to be fixed in later versions.

    In the case of Zone Alarm 6.5 or Norton 2007 it actually has to be
    uninstalled. Make sure the Windows Firewall is turned on until you
    reinstall Zone Alarm.

    Boot into Safe Mode with Networking and try the change.
