    What's "Tomboy"?


    At any rate, one option is....go to:

    "Start"
    "Run"
    Type: "msconfig"
    Click "ok"

    Go to "startup" tab

    See if the software you want to start with Windows is listed and if so, check the box to the left.

    Apply changes, and then allow Windows to restart your PC after applying changes.

    I guess you`re talking about " Tomboy Notes", what version are you running? There were some startup problems in windows that were sposed to have been fixed several versions ago. The suggestions above should work if it is working ok otherwise.

    Also make sure you`ve followed the instructions here.
