    I'm curious as to which way you guys would make a program startup as soon as a user logs on.

    scenario: User phones requesting you get outlook to run automatically when he logs on, he is the sole user of the workstation.

    Do you,

    Goto documents and settings and find the startup folder and then add the outlook program to it.

    or

    Goto start|run type mmc add a group policy snap-in and add the outlook path to the "run these programs at user logon" section of the computer config

    I would also just add it to the startup folder, thats what I do on my system. That way if I find I no longer need to have this program startup when logging in I can easily remove it from the startup folder.

    I have a short cut to the Startup Folder on my desktop for quick access.

    I agree with "Start-up folder", it simple and easy for the user to get rid off when he/she doesn't want it anymore :)
