easiest way is to put a shortcut to it in the startup folder of your start menu. (assuming you mean on windows)

Assuming that you have Windows and that you want an easy way to do (that is use GUI). An alternative to putting a shortcut in the startup folder is using Quick Startup and the best part is that its free.

'Quick Startup' is pretty useful. Thanks for the info. – prosseek Sep 10 '10 at 20:48

The site you linked to is mentioning a way to check your startup files in Windows when you are looking for a virus, unwanted application, or just cleaning up a machine. They are also talking about a registered database of known startup applications. You didn't mention which version of Windows you are running? I am going to assume this is for Windows.

Is your question about adding an application to their known startup database? Or is it about adding startup files to your personal pc?

If your wanting just to add startup files on your pc, there are two ways to do it:

  1. Through the startup folder in your start menu. You can just add a shortcut to the app you want run to that folder.

  2. Through the registry. I don't recommend this way unless your comfortable editing the registry.

See here for more detailed instructions:
