Launch AutoStart programs before login

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

When I turn on my computer, I usually leave it to boot for a few minutes before I come back. However, when I get back I have to log in and then wait for all my start up programs to load. Is there anyway to have those programs load at the log in screen (I only have one account)? I am running Win7 x64.

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

The only way to load your start up programs is to log on with your user account. If you want to automatically log in when your computer starts, there are instructions here:

If you are concerned with security (I would be), you can add a startup program that will lock the screen:

Command-line (cmd) command to lock a windows machine

That way, your computer will start, your user account will log on, and the screen will lock. You will still have to enter your password when you get back to your computer, but your start up items will have loaded.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
