I suspect you have some issue with your account in Windows not having the appropriate permissions. What you might try:

Hi cyborgcey9759

Is the Rainmeter launch icon in C:\Users\(your username)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup?

What Windows version are you using? If Windows 10, go to Start > Settings > Apps > Startup and check there is you have a Rainmeter desktop customization tool and if it is set active. I suppose it is not.
