Start a Programme at Boot Up

I installed Hide OE yesterday. For those not in the know, this makes Outlook Express minimise to the System Tray. I am happy with the results, however, when I first start the PC I have to enable this programme every time before the OE will minimise into the System Tray. It would be good ig Hide OE would start at boot automatically, but there is no setting to make this happen. Can I achieve this by other means. Running XP SP2.

Yep. Put a copy of its icon in your Startup folder.

Didn't work. Copied the programme icon into the Startup folder, rebooted, started OE, minimised it and it went to the task bar. Started Hide OE and it shot into the system tray.

That is what it is meant to do.

It was meant to do that automatically. Anyway, turns out I owe you an apology! I had copied the icon into the wrong folder. Copied it into Startup and it did work so many thanks.
