Hello,

Should I choose to have a program start with Windows, I prefer when possible to have it launched from within the Registry than from the Start Menu. In the case of ProcessTamer, what is the best Registry section, "Registry - User Run" or "Registry - Machine Run" (after having of course disabled "Start with Windows" in Configuration) ?

Thanks smiley

The difference between them:

User: it will only run for that user account and not any other
machine: it will run for all users

So you have to decide if you want it to run no matter who is logged on the machine, or if you just want it to run in your account when you are logged on.

OK, app103, thanks. If I asked it is also because I have noticed in the past that changing the launch of certain programs from the Start Menu to the Registry (User or Machine) made them fail to start normally. If I have the choice as you described it, hence I understand ProcessTamer may be then launched from Registry, fine.

Sorry for my slightly complicated formulation, that of a Frenchman cheesy

tomos, a general security issue, no more. My security configuration notifies me of any change in the Registry, but not in the Start menu. In the case of ProcessTamer, it's related rather to a habit than to a security issue, of course. Also, as a slight maniac, I have preferences which are not always rational cheesy

as a matter of fact, i too prefer running programs from registry.. it has become a habit of mine since i came across malwares some years back.. i normally use Mike Lin's StartupMonitor and Startup Control Panel in tandem..
