If it has an entry in msconfig, check it to bring it back. If not, drag it's exe file to the Startup folder.

it's = its. Errant apostrophe!

copy then paste the exe file rather than dragging it, as this will move it from the original folder.

I am assuming that the poster already knows *how* to drag it over to avoid moving the file without creating a copy!

(Hold Ctrl or right-click it for those who don't know).

not wishing to be facetious but the chair of a company i worked for for many years was known to say assumption id for idiots and bankrupts. sorry to be a bit off topic but could not resist it;)

You're right; that is facetious.
