Lightbulb Startup Timer?

Is there a way i can get a "startup timer?"

For Example:
Upon startup, a program loads 30 seconds after logon

Basically i want everything to load when i startup my computer.. then once its finished i want a "startup timer" to load another application

I know that this is confusing, and that it prolly doesnt exisist, but i need it real bad

Thanks,
Alexsabree

What about Windows Scheduled Tasks?

Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Scheduled Tasks

This lets you automatically open programs when you log in, or at a specific time during the day

nah.. i want the program to startup like 40 seconds after every logon

Not just a specific time of day....

But apparently noone knows of anything like this

All my ideas go to waste, if only i knew how to make programs

why not Scheduled Tasks? it may not wait 40 seconds but you can set the program to load when you logon.

Gimme 5 minutes to remember them name..I tried one the other day but I didnt like it.
It lets you run a program and you pick the amount of time until it starts..not sure if has a start up feature tho..I didnt check it out that much. Maybes its what you want..
