PestPatrol question

by f15e / December 31, 2004 3:08 AM PST

I have PestPatrol and each time I start my computer, I must click on the PestPatrol icon and click the button, "Start Active Protection Now" b/c it doesn't automatically start when Windows starts.

I have the "Start Active Protection when my computer starts", box checked. I also went into msconfig to see if the box was checked in there, but it wasn't even in there. I have seen the box in msconfig to allow PestPatrol to startup when Windows starts up one time, but then it disappeared and I haven't seen it since.

What do you think the problem is?

Pestscan online scan, which has been giving people a lot of false positives lately, I have never used it. They have some support options on the web site, have you tried that yet?
