Process Tames doesn't auto start with windows. Please help!How did you fix it? Same problem.
SOLVED! Please delete this post. Thank you!
Hi! I used Task Scheduler to start the Program Automatically when the Windows Starts.
Hi, no soap I'm afraid.
I set it up with Task Scheduler okay, but then on Boot when ProcessTamer tried to start automatically, the screen dimmed and a pop-up 'User Account Control' window appeared asking me if I wanted to approve of this program making changes to my computer.
The UAC allows me to change its response levels, and I lowered the slider from Level 3 (Windows recommended) to Level 2 (not rec'd), which eliminates the screen dimming action, but it still required me to give approval every time.
So I moved the UAC's slider down to Level 1 to totally stop using it, in order to get it to stop blocking automatic 'start on boot' of ProcessTamer, and two other programs stopped working properly; SurfSolo (a paid tunneled & encrypted VPN) and f.lux.
In fact, SurfSolo normally never self-starts the way I've got it set up, and it was trying to self-start but failing to connect.
So I had to put UAC back to Level 3, and delete the Task Scheduler task to start PT on boot, to get SurfSolo and f.lux working properly again.
It's no biggie; one click and PT starts very nicely, so I'm not going to worry about it.
Thank you for the info anyway though; almost had it figured out there.
UAC is supposed to help prevent unwanted PUPs and malware from self-installing, so it's not so bad having it set to Level 3 like that I guess.
BTW, I never knew about Task Scheduler before, and now I've got a very useful tool to play with. Thanks again!
