Hi,

You can create a new user profile though control panel > user accounts. Log into this account and
try to disable as many startup programs as possible by going into the options of the specific
programs. You may also consider removing un-important programs from loading at startup by disabling
them from MSCONFIG (Start/Run MSCONFIG).

Thereafter, you can add a shortcut to your favourite MP3 player to the startup folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

This will ensure that everytime you log-in to the specific user account, the MP3 player software
launches automatically. I hope this helps.
