Rather than risk screwing up your whole computer, why not just use the startup folder in your programs menu?

Yes its much easier to just create a shortcut to your movie and then put it in the startup folder.

Would be easier; unless you mean a Boot Screen or something?

Ah; kind of thought you meant that. But that would not be in the resistry - you'd have to make the film a Boot Screen File, in something like Style Builder for Style XP or something like that. IF, of course, it is possible for you to do it in the first place. It would have to be in 16 Colours anyway even if you could I think - so it may not look so good.

They are very hard to make; and it probably won't work anyway because of the simple fact that you'd need a sort of animation, because of certain Booting Graphical Drawbacks.
