    Cool popping at startup


    Hi everybody, I'm just new here so hi again....anyway, I was wondering if someone could help me with this...it's all about activating your program at start-up, for example after loading my desktop a message would pop-up and says "GOOD MORNING", in short I was wondering if I could put my program at start-up so that before proceeding to clicking the icons or start button an introductory thing would pop-up, please tell me how can i do that...if my story confuses you please tell me....thanks in advance!

    What you're looking for is Windows Scripting.
    Try searching google for "Windows Script Host"
    or "Windows startup script".

    Actually, you should be able to place your program into the startup directory and it should run automatically once the system is booted.
