    That's great news.

    You could place a shortcut of the UserTile.exe file in the hidden folder below to do so.

    C:\Users\(user-name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    Would you believe:

    I worked it out without using this technique. Well I did, but I didn't read this.

    I remembered when I last went to the startup folder in Windows 7.
    I knew it was in user-homedir/AppData/Roaming/Microsoft/Windows/Startup. (Or something like that...)

    Ah.
    Disable the clock, and re-enable it.
    Alternatively, look at this: Page 1 of this thread, post with the tip and warning.
