    Just recently, at most boot-ups one or other of my start-ups in the systray are not launching ??

    A reboot has always fixed the issue:
    see image for systray:
    Affected so far have been
    NAV/NIS
    Spyware Guard
    BOClean
    Bigpond Cable login
    CyberHawk
    and
    PrevX

    Does not happen everytime
    is not same app each time

    Have scanned with all the usual: clear
    Run CCleaner
    jv16 regcleaner
    Regopt

    No slowdown or pop-ups

    An irritation
    Anyclues??

    Franklin,
    Thanks but the apps are just not starting:
    I'm searching for any clues but no real luck so far.

    Regards.

    Hi Longboard

    It's painful, but I'd start by uninstalling some of your security software, one by one. It may well be there is a conflict between two of them.

    Have you Used a Registry Cleaner Lately? if So that'll be the case, Check your msconfig box and see if those Apps are still present in the Startup Tab. I have a feeling you will find that they are Missing,and the registrys have been deleted o_O If you have used a Registry cleaner, try restoring from the registry backups, presuming you Made One

    Thanks Gents
    @DVD+R: see above, yes and yes.

    Pete; you may be right: if anything the problem started since uninstall of NIS and reinstall of NIS2007. Heh: have to be high on the list eh.

    Bugger: I'LL see what I can do: disable one at a time, the problem is it doesn't always reproduce itself
    Any other suggestions gratefully recieved.
    Thx.

    Perhaps a program such as Startup Delayer might help--if there is a conflict. This program enables you to set a delay of x seconds between each program starting at startup. Startup takes a little longer using it but it is easy to use and you control the sequences of loading.

    This definately sounds like a registry issue :blink: Although at present, I have ATI Control Center installed on my Vista Machine, it ran at first startup when I installed it, but each subsequent startup seems not to load it into the taskbar, yet it is in msconfig startup programs, and it doesnt show in the Startup folder in the programs Menu :blink: I too used a Reg Cleaner, and now its been removed from the Startup Folder :ninja: Longboard has somehow Given me the Gremlins :D
