    That's a pity, but thanks for the help. I'll just use that shortcut and start it manually everytime. Too bad that OpenVPN needs admin rights to connect, otherwise I could start it automatically.

    So, I just noticed that Samsung Magician is starting automatically on a standard user account and needs administrator rights. If that works, what's the right way to do the same with other programs? Use the registry?
