I downloaded hdparm from here: https://sites.google.com/site/disablehddapm/ and so far it's been great, it successfully stopped rapid increase in load/unload cycle count. The only problem is that I have to rerun it manually every time I boot up Windows 7. Is there a way to run hdparm automatically while windows starts?

Copy the executable/copy shortcut to the executable to start menu -> all programs -> startup.

I moved hdparm location from Program Files(x86) to Program Files and now it runs automatically at start up after I log in.
