I have lavasoft se professional. And everytime I turn on my computer lavasoft runs upon startup. I would like to know if there is a way to not have the program run every time I turn on my computer. I have used regedit and msconfig to remove the option of having it run upon startup to no avail. Any help will be great.

If you open Ad-aware SE

Once it has loaded....

Click on the gear (Configure button)

Then click on the Startup tab,

Then click, under the "startup scan mode" No automated scanning.

This should solve your problem
