    Does anyone know how to make Spywareguard start automatically when the computer starts? I can't find any such function in the program. If there is not an autostart feature is there another way I can make it start automatically on computer startup?

    Hi Mikkel :)

    Is the red "SG" not showing in your systems tray?

    As far as i know when u download spywareguard it should automatically startup with your computer.

    I have spywareguard and it has always automatically started up on my computer.

    Check to see if spywareguard is in your startup folder.

    If it isn't all i can suggest is to uninstall and reinstall spywareguard again.

    Maybe someone else has another suggestion.

    Check and see if you have "real time scanning" enabled in the options menu. If it's enabled I would think it would load at start up, if it doesn't post back. You can also check in msconfig (or the XP equivalent) to see if there's an item for loading on start up that might have been disabled.

    Otherwise placing a short cut to the program in your start up list should also do it, but first check out the above.

    So - is it possible to ensure it runs on startup on all of the four logon accounts my family has on Win XP. At the moment it only loads on the one account that I installed it under - surely I don't have to install it four times! All the accounts are unrestricted.
