|Reading and acting on preferences on startup / plugin load [message #685160]

I have created a plugin which contributes a wizard and some preference pages to the Eclipse UI.
Now after the user has selected the option(s) on the preference page as he/she wished for example, they are being saved successfully.
My question is: Is there any way to execute certain code upon startup of Eclipse (at/after loading of the plugin) which makes use of the preference store without requiring the user to visit preference page? (because that it what already works, my code is executed when the pref-page is loaded)
The init methods are only being called after the user visits the preference page and therefore the plug-in preference store is accessed. How can i tell Eclipse/my plugin to access that store on load and perform an action based on a preference right away?
I already found out that an activator is executed when a plugin starts, but I can't load the preferenceStore at that early point, so activator does not seem to be an option. But where do I need to put my code to get it executed on startup then?
