Start Windows Application whenever Windows is Started

Is there anyway to start a windows application whenever windows is started ( i.e., when the OS loads but before I log in)?

"You have to run it as a Windows Service. The easiest way to do this is to install it via SrvAny (it's in the resource kit). Microsoft KB Article KB137890 explains how to do it.

Another option, though not free, is to use a third-party tool like FireDaemon to handle creating and monitoring the service."

Only if it's installed as a service. Otherwise it has to start in an interactive session.
