My wife wants a piece of software to start when her computer has finished the login and start up.

I have found the relavent ".exe" file right clicked on it and created a shortcut which I have saved to the desktop.

I know that I now have to get this into the startup folder/menu or whatever it is called but I cannot find it anywhere other than a reference to it under "start/all programmes/startup" I know this is probably a simple procedure but this is the first time I have really had to "dive" into XP so I am a bit lost, and any help or links to a suitable tutorial would be greatly appreciated.

For future ref, you can just drag and drop program exes onto the 'All Programs'\Startup menu, and a shortcut is created automatically.
