    regedit help/question;

    win 7 64 bit;

    I need to look for what in regedit to get 2 of my programs tor run at boot ?

    In XP I would just right/click the .exe file and send it to startup but in win7 it doesn't work and ipconfig startup doesn't will not either.

    This is usually done in msconfig/Startup but if they aren't already running at Boot then they won't be listed and will be on demand programs - but which are the two programs you want to do this ?

    Put a shortcut to the .exe file in C:\Users\Yourname\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Window s\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    Jag,

    You could also use the task scheduler which has an option (under triggers) to run at boot.
    See this post.
