    I just did an upgrade to 4.2.67 and it was successful. I now see in startup that there are 'two' egui KEYS listed. HKCU:Run and HKLM:Run.

    (I believe only one was in startup before this upgrade)

    The copy below shows they point to same file.
    HKCU:Run egui "C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security\egui.exe" /hide /waitservice
    HKLM:Run egui "C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security\egui.exe" /hide /waitservice

    Wondering what this means and asking for any info to explain.

    Thank you.

    HKCU will run it under the current logged on user.
    HKLM will run it for any logged on user.
    They probably switched from one to the other and forgot to remove the other key.

    Thank you for the information. I am wondering then if I can remove one of the startup keys since I do not need both in the startup.
    Only two of us using this computer and so HKLM would do it. Is it suggested then to only have HKLM running?
    Thank you.
