another simple way you can use is to create an icon for your exe file in the windows startup folder.

A shortcut, actually, not an "icon". The Startup folder is also in Start->Programs->Startup, which is also scoped for either the user or the system depending on the platform (Windows vs. Windows NT). The best way would be to create a Windows Installer project and use the Shortcuts designer there. The Windows Installer runtime automatically determines the platform and uses a global shortcut, or it can use a user shortcut (if available) depending on your options.

For examples, on Windows NT-based platforms (NT4, 2000, XP, 2003, and all future versions) except for NT4 (everything was in C:\Winnt\Profiles), you can use either C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup for all users, or C:\Documents and Settings\username\Start Menu\Programs\Startup for a specific user.

For Windows, this is typically C:\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.

Of course, replace the C: drive with your system drive, but this is usually C:. Again, if you use a Windows Installer project, it automatically resolves all special shell folders.

To add a Windows Installer project to your solution (which can then take advantage of build targets for your other proejct(s)), right-click on your solution, select "Add->New Project", select "Setup and Deployment Projects", then "Setup Project". Give it a name and click "OK".
