    I'm having a bit of a problem trying to get a couple of programs to load on startup under a standard user account.
    If anyone uses Spybot S&D, you'll know that it'll give you the option to run tea timer, which loads up on startup. However, without administrative credentials, the program does not start at all. I'd like to have tea timer to start on all accounts so that it provides some sort of protection to the system, but I don't know how to get it to load on the standard user account.

    try moving the folder out of program files, just c:\spybot and see if you can get it working that way ?

    One trick that gets around the UAC startup issue is to add the startup program to a scheduled task that runs on startup and with administrative rights.
    Worked for xfire anyway.
