How to prevent Act starts automatically when computer boots

HI!

 

Since the last upgrade to Act! Pro Version 20.0.159.0, Update 9, Act starts automatically when I switch my computer on ( Running under W10). 

It slowdown the starting process.

 

I would like to launch ACT only when I neeed it.( like before the Upgrade)

 

I checked in the Windows " Program when start":  but nothing on ACT.

 

What is the trick?

 

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: How to prevent Act starts automatically when computer boots

You may have already done this but here is a very good link about removing auto start from windows 10

BUT - I have noticed that with the latest update of windows 10 if you close down the PC with ACT running it will start it and any other programs that were running when turned on again. It maybe this is what is happening.

Hi!

 

I checked in Start tab and directly in Regedit  (HKEY LOCAL MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/ CurrentVersion/Run )...   but nothing on Act.

 

 

By the way, Outlook starts automatically when booting but it also doesn't appear in this list. It seems that another place exists in W10 for "automatic start".

 

Thanks for your help.
