    Is it installed as a Service?

    Go to regedit.exe, and add an entry in here:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\Run

    The other entries will show you how to do it.

    It's basically in the same spot, except in RunServices not Run. Also, look in the same places except with HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE instead of HKEY_CURRENT_USER.
