C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\Scripts\Startup\
There can also be a shutdown folder.

Minimwatch does require a user interface so it can be started easily from the users startup folder
c:\users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\startup

Using a startup script means that you are running MinimServer as system which is a highly priivileged account. Simon has pointed out that it is designed to be run by an unprivileged account, so this isn't a good way to run it. Putting the MinimServer shortcut in the users startup folder is ok, and is your best bet if you want to avoid the complications of the virtual service account. I'll have another look at the task scheduler method, but it will only be equivalent if the account isn't a member of administrators.

Any method other than the shortcut in the users startup folder should use the command line option that Simon mentioned to suppress the tray icon.
