I know there has been a thread discussing the issue of pgaccount not starting, but I think I may have a variation of it. When the computer is first started or rebooted and I go into the account with admin privileges pgacconut starts up fine. After I log off, the computer has beeen idle for a few hours and I try to log on to the admin account, I get the message that pgaccount is not running. In order to get it running again I have to reboot then of course after a few hours of idling I get the message again. I have checked the registry according to the previous thread and found that pgaccount is in every place it should be. I have KAV 5.0.388, RegDefend, LookNStop and Winpatrol also running in the background. Could Winpatrol be interfering with it? If so, what can I do to prevent this short of uninstalling Winpatrol? Thanks in advance.
