    I have the GSS version of RegDefend (licensed) and the beta AppDefend (unlicensed). GSS system icon fails to appear after boot. Application appears in HKLM_Run but fails to start. Downloaded and attempted to reinstall. HKLM\Software\Microsoft Windows\CurrentVersion\Run error occurs: RegSetValueEx failed; code 5 Access denied.
    GSS starts manually; otherwise seems normal. Any thoughts?

    voirdire,
    Just to make sure that the driver isn't interfering with things you could boot into safe mode and uninstall the product, then boot normally and install again

    See if that helps (for starters)

    New error message at boot: "Access violation at 0x7C9379D1 (tried to write to 0x00030FFC), program terminated." GSS fails to run at boot. This seems to occur (the initial time) after I switch on, use and switch off a Dynex external CD r/rw using Nero Express to burn a CD and reboot. Any help is appreciated. I really don't want to reinstall every time I use the recorder, if that is the problem.

    voirdire,
    What version are you running, it should say in the title bar at the top
    Have you changed the rules from the defaults at all ?

    As a first thing to try, on the first tab (Home) can you change your RegDefend profile to be <DISABLED> then retry the operation in the same way please and see if the gss.exe still runs into the same error

    Thanks

    Inexplicably, it's back. I'm running 1.110 GSS beta with Tony and RegRun and additional rules (194 total). I've been running those rules since the beginning (with various modifications due to the change from RD to GSS as suggested in posts past.) Perhaps it's a ghost in the machine. Seems okay now, though. Thanks for your help.

    voirdire,
    It wouldn't be a beta if it didn't have at least a few little glitches...
    The beta has been remarkably stable which is a good sign imo

    If it does happen again and you don't find an acceptable workaround (like using a smaller ruleset or disabling during this one operation) you could always go back to the release version of RD until the next beta comes out

    If you want to persevere with the beta then by all means I can try and help you get to the bottom of the problem you are experiencing, and then it can be reported to Jason in a way that should help him fix it :)
