    Hi I'm quite new to this forum - but recently I've read a lot of threads.

    Recently I installed the program ProcessGuard and I've a question regarding this program.

    When I boot in safe mode it seems that PG isn't running but I could be wrong ... How do I make it start up on boot regardless that windows is booted in safe mode.

    I noted that PG seems to start up when I start it up manually in safe mode but only the process processguard that's viewable in taskmanager the gui seems to be getting nowhere ...

    So - does it function in safe mode - and is there a way to make it start up automatically regardless which mode the 'puter boots up in ...?

    Drivers and services such as ProcessGuard do not run in safe mode, usually only some basic system services run in safe mode. This is intentional so that errant drivers can be removed and other troublshooting procedures can be addressed.
    A good example is your video driver as supplied by your graphics card maker, these will not load in safe mode and Windows defaults to it's generic drivers for safety.
    There is a limited selection when entering safe mode but this is generally whether to allow things such as networking, again using Windows generic drivers.

    thank you for your swift answer, Pilli ...

    Might I add it would be a good feature to include in forthcoming versions of this seemingly great piece of software.
