A friend on my jabber server came up with a way for pidgin to start just after boot on a windows system . Not a bad way, but it is difficult for simple users. Hence, this post: Make pidgin start on boot time on windows --the super easy -- politically correct -- way :).
Tools -> Plugins -> Select "Windows Pidgin Options 2.10.6" -> Click on "Configure Plugin" -> check "Start Pidgin on Windows Startup" > click "Close" -> click "Close"
yeah, it simply adds one more item in the Startup List --check with msconfig
start pidgin on boot - windows
