You have too little info but I would assume no *nix wants anything at startup and so you are looking for something in Windows

2 ways of doing it.

1. Have a shortcut in the start up item of start menus
2. Have an entry in registry at the following Location
- HKLM / HKCU > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Run
