Ok, while I wait for some response to my previous post I thought I would relate something I found odd with AllMyNotes...
Yesterday, I needed to disable all my startup items. Today I have had some of them startup and I have allowed some and thought better about others to keep a lean mean computing machine. I had occasion to fire up AllMyNotes and WinPatrol alerted me that a new stratup program has been detected...
C:\Program Files\AllMyNotes Organizer\AllMyNotes.exe -autostartup
Fine, I don't want it in my startup, but I want to test it out some more, so I push the "No" button. I expected I would proceed with my trial, but am surprised to discover that the program has canceled itself!
Again, I try it and same result. After the third time, my browser opens up with a page from WinPatrol with the following verbiage...
Why this is happening?
Frequently, unwanted mystery programs come in groups which are designed to protect and reactivate each other. Even if you tell Scotty to remove and kill a Startup Program, another partner program will replace the data removed by WinPatrol.
If WinPatrol detects the same program repeating itself, Scotty will automatically mark this program as Disabled. While "Disabled", WinPatrol will continue to remove the Startup Program but if other programs are actively replacing it more action is recommended.
You can read it all here
if you have a standard WinPatrol installation. Note: this link calls up a help page on your PC, not the Internet.
So, from where I sit it *looks* like AllMyNotes won't operate unless it can have a place in the startup group. To be fair, I have made some low-level changes to my files lately, but I am at a loss as to why changing other seemingly unrelated files would change the behavior of AllMyNotes?
Anyone else had this behavior?
