Start Menu > Programs > Startup
this is the easiest way without touching the registry which sounds like a good idea regarding your amount of experience.

The easiest way would to just add it to your startup folder.
If you want it to run only when you signon...
%systemdrive%\documents and settings\youruseracct\start menu\programs\startup
create a shortcut there.
you could also add it to the registry...
create a key there and point it to what you want to startup.
the registry tweaking is a bit dangerous if you don't know what you're doing... I'd stick with method 1.
there are many other ways too... but this will get the job done pretty easily for you.
I suggest you search google for startup locations if you want to know more.
