Question for Powerdesk Pro 6 Users

by Mike7p / February 13, 2008 10:43 PM PST

Hi There,
I've just recently been introduced to Powerdesk Pro 6, the superb substitue for Windows Explorer and have installed it on both my laptop and desktop PCs. There is one slight problem that I hope someone out there will be able to help me with.
When I boot up the Desktop PC it opens up to my Desktop as I want, however, the laptop always opens to the Powerdesk window. I thought that I used the same install options on both machines. I've checked in the Startup folder and in Start with Windows, but the program isn't listed there. As far as I can see all the settings in "Preferences" are set the same, but they appear differently. Can anybody think what else I can try so the desktop appears by default?
One other thing I've noticed whilst typing this on the laptop, is that my automatic spellcheck in Firefox is not working any more, even though it is set to "check as I type" in Tools>Options>General. Any "idaes" what's gon rong!
