    If I'm understanding correctly, you want to run CounterSpy as an on-demand scanner only. If that's the case, then do the following:

    1. Turn off Active Protections

    In the main CS app, go View >> Settings >> Active Protection, then uncheck the box titled "Enable real time spyware protection."

    2. Shut down CounterSpy

    Right-click on the CS tray icon, and select "Shut down CounterSpy."

    3. Edit your auto-start entries

    On your Start menu, go Start >> Run, then type MSCONFIG in the box and hit the OK button. The System Configuration Utility should open.

    Navigate to the "Startup" tab and uncheck the box for "sunserver." Click "Apply," then "OK" to save your changes, and reboot your PC.

    At this point CounterSpy should not start up automatically.

    One final bit of advice, make sure that you have the latest build of CS 1.5, which is 1.5.82. If you're using an earlier version (check the Help >> About box) then visit http://www.sunbelt-softare.com/ and download the latest version.

    Best,

    Thanks but cs continues to run in startup. In truth, cs is inactive, but it continues to run when windows is starting up
