Is there a way to make a start up process start with a delay of say 30 seconds via the registry? I tried software but none of them work with win 7 beta.


EDIT: If not, Is there a way to have the start up programs start in a certain order?

There are programs that will do this (for either XP or Vista) but I don't know if they're 7 compatible.
As for startup order - it wasn't very easy in XP, so I gave up on trying it with Vista. No news about it in 7 that I've seen.
You can set services with a startup delay in the Service.msc applet

You can add a shortcut into the folder "start up" with the time delay of 30 seconds.
