For the security settings, I recommend that you read about this in
Start > Help and Support.
To create an user, log on with an admin account and in the Control

To stop an auto- starting software: "How to Modify the List of
Programs that Run When You Start Windows XP"
You cannot run a program with the Registry. The Registry provides some
places to auto-run a program when Windows starts. You can find more
about this in the mentioned text.
