    Not to mention, it's a crap thread title.

    And what exactly is your C++ question anyway (moved to tech)?

    IMO, this is a question better posted on a forum which supports your virus scanner.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    It is generally poor form to forceably start an application. If you need it to do so, the user can place a shortcut to the executable in the startup folder. Putting it into the registry, where the average user cannot remove it or even know it is there, is in fact virus like behavior.

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Perhaps you should use a recognised installer, which might be permitted to modify certain key registry entries, so long as certain steps are followed would work.

    But Joe Random's program modifying the startup registry entry - yeah, tell me again how that doesn't look like virus activity.

    abachler's startup folder idea is no less effective, and far more transparent.
