    I've got TDS-3 on two machines and I have problems on both of them with TDS-3 hanging when it is automatically started.

    I have it set to start with windows and then minimize to the system task tray. I have it set to run when windows starts up because I want to use the Exec Protection feature and don't want to have to remember to manually start TDS-3.

    I think the problem happens because other security apps haven't finished loading before TDS-3. If I could find a way to delay TDS-3 from starting...say by a few seconds or so...I think that would solve the problem.

    Is there a utility that would allow me to introduce such a delay...or does TDS-3 have this capability itself?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi Taz,
    Try unticking the start at windows startup and instead drop a shortcut into the Start - All programs - statup folder this should give TDS3 the space it needs to do it's startup scans and load EP.

    HTH Pilli :)

    DOH!! (slaps forehead) Of course! Thanks Pilli for a nice, simple, and elegant solution that I should have been able to figure out on my own. I tell ya, sometimes I can't see the forest for the trees.

    Really appreciate the quick response too.
