Adding command line to program in startup folder

  1. I have a program that always loads at startup. I used MS Config to stop it, but because it doesn't load the program goes back to its default settings.
    I was told to add "--startup" or "--startup--once" to the command line under propereties of the shortcut in the start folder. I tried that but keep getting the error about wrong path. I'm not good with command lines, any help?

    The program is KX Mixer (3rd party driver package for SB Live audio card (instead of that grossly bloated mess from Creative).

    I'm running 2k.
