Is it possible to make a program start right up on its own when windows fires up?

Or in startup.ini, in the windows directory add a line
Run = "C:\Program Location\file.exe"

However that's a bitch to get rid of, so don't do it unless you're writing something malicious. And if you are, stop

Haha, don't worry. I've built an arcade machine, and want my game to start right up when the machine fires up. Thanks for the help.

Wouldn't that just be really really annoying?

Ah, one of those.

So it's a pc that runs Mame (the arcade emulator) or something straight from bootup but sits inside an arcade cabinet.

Doesn't have to be mame. I made a version of Bubblejump, but all arcade like, with coin insert and stuff. Noodle, I think he means start up the app, not begin a new game.
