    I have been using the trial version for two days - tonight 'Startup Monitor' - part of Startup Inspector for Windows - reports that '"C:\Program Files\ewido anti-spyware 4.0\ewido.exe" /minimized in Local Machine Run has been removed'

    If I tell it to restore the entry, the message pops up again about 4 seconds later.

    Checking ewido's own Autostart list shows that ewido is not present.

    Is some spyware removing the entry or what?

    BTW I have had the shield turn off by itself too (yesterday but not today).

    Any suggestions?


    Update: Ok, I've stopped the 4 sec message - by simply clicking on the 'Start with Windows' option from the tray icon. However, this doesn't explain how come it was turned off - it was on and I didn't turn it off!
