    Need help executing an EXE on startup when I have CobraIII as the shell

    I have windows ME, cobraIII set as the shell, but I need to run 2 separate programs, IRassistant and winlirc, minimized so they hide themselves in the system tray. is this possible when cobraiii is set as the shell (or any other program set as the shell)? if so how do i do it? Thanks!

    try adding them all to a batch file, and make the batch file the shell? should work..... you might need to adjust/make a .pif file to have the programs start minimised where required.....
