    Which version of windows?
    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.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    If you need to have it start up for all users, put it in the registry in:

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
