Just as I wrote in the subject... I got the ActivatedSoon advice from here. I applied the reg file...and Incredimail (my email client) stopped working! It wouldn't search for emails anylonger, and sometimes it would suddenly terminate! It took me time to recall what changes I had done to my system which could lead to IM not working anylonger...But eventually I was sure the ActivatedSoon reg file was the only thing I had added to the registry: no other softwares installed and/or the like. I reverted the change, rebooted...and there I had IM working normally again! Now, I find it odd that LnS layer catching the earlier loadings before fully booting can cause such a big repercussion on IncrediMail; how can it be? Btw, I'm quite sure there's no other culprit beside the ActivatedSoon reg file: I tried to enable and disable that, and every time it was enable, IncrediMail wouldn't work properly. I'm wondering whether this can be a general issue (bug), or it's just something related to my machine and its configuration... Can anyone running IncrediMail do some tests about that? Anyway, I hope my experience can be of help to anyone finding himself in the same situation! See ya!
