How do I make a program start when I log into my account with windows xp. Cause I want that when I log in the teamspeak turns on but I only want this to work with my account and not with the other users of this computer. Is that possible.

And how do I stop programs oppening for other users

BTW I have the administrator account

There is an easy way to do this and a hard way. I'll start with easy one first.

Place a shortcut in your C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Start Menu\Programs\Startup folder.

Run "regedit", navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" and add a string value with what ever name you want. Change the value to the path of the program you want to be launched.

To remove start up programs run "msconfig" and go to the startup tab.

Hope this helps.
