    StartMenu\Programs\\Startup folder?

    or you could try the registry key HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\Run.

    Alot of these are Win9x specific and won't work on NT, 2000, or XP.
    Nobody knows what software they want until after you've delivered what they originally asked for.
