    If you comfortable with C/C++, then you can write a console program that will run before windows start.

    Check out "Services".

    I tried a "ServiceManager" either through here or vbsquare, but it didn't work as advertised.

    Is there any way to make an Application
    start BEFORE windows is run. I tried loading it into the Autoexec.bat file but then I
    got a message saying the it cannot be run
    in MS-DOS mode.

    VB apps require the Windows Environment to run, so the best you can do is Run your App at Startup.
