    You may hv also noticed whenever you login to Windows XP for the firsttime Windows Tour appears... then the startmenu popups...automatically... also when you create a new account and login to it for first time....

    I know how to run Windows tour everytime I log in... but tht'll be quite irritating....

    Now I wanna know how can make that startmenu automatically open each time I login?????

    Well dear, this happens for three times exactly. The fourth time you login this behaviour is cancelled. This is a default feature of Windows XP. I dont know if you can start the StartMenu at login automatically but yes u can start MSword or any other application at login. I will try to find a way out anyway... if i can... I will post a reply soon.

    thnx man...
    yes, i also know how to execute programs at login (start-up)...
    i remember old days when I installed Longhorn Build 3683 last year in Augst... (one of earlier Longhorn versions which leaked from Microsoft ;-) )

    It has this feature...

    everytime.. yeah everytime... I used to login to my session startmenu used to pop-up...

    tht time I found it has some batch files (.BAT) in startup entries... i'm not sure whether it was related with startmenu or not.... but it was first time i was BAT files on startup entries... :roll: :roll:

    in later builds of Longhorn Microsoft removed this feature..

    it really looks nice and feel good popping-up that startmenu automatically on each login... isn't it... lol

    'm also searching any way to do it...

    try this:
    run regedit
    go to HKEY_CURRNET_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\
    here, on the right side, right click and add a new string value and name it Windows Tour
    now, dbl click on it and in the Value Data tab, add the location of the tour
    ( c:\windows\system32\tourstart.exe )
    restart the comp
    hope this helps.

    no sree...
    .. u got it wrong...
    what u suggested will open Windows Tour (tourstart.exe) on start-up... by adding its entries to HKLM >>> Run registry...

    but what I want to do it startmenu popping-up automatically everytime like you login for the first time after a new installaion/reinstallation of Windows...

    i think it's time to visually represent what i want to do everytime at login...

    hmmm... i'll upload pics 2morrow...
