    I have a problem with gmail notifier not opening whenever i boot my computer up. It would not only not open, but it would disappear from the startup folder in "all programs" on my start menu. I have tried re-0installing gmail notifier in different versions to no avail. I would always have to open it manually after start-up. I don't like the newer versions of gmail notifier, and like the one i have always used version 1.0.25.0 which always used to work with my operating system but starting about 2 weeks ago, the problem started. I can never get it to open on startup, and it would disappear from my startup folder in my other programs library, no matter how many times i replace it it does not work and always disappears from the startup menu. Any suggestions my helpful friends, ty, roger

    How are you setting it to start? If you are placing the shortcut manually in the Startup folder, the settings in the program itself relating to its startup may be overriding that placement and removing the shortcut.

    Hello elvandil, thank you for such a prompt reply, must have been only 15 seconds after i posted my problem.
    I drag the shortcut from my "start menu" into "all programs" and add it to "startup". You could be right, i could be over riding gmails application but like i said, i reinstalled this application several times and should start automatically, but doesn't, any suggestions my friend, thank you, roger

    Had windows re-installed due to an irrelevant major issue, re-installed gmail notifier, working ok, never found out what the original problem was, probably windows corrupted, which it was, missing files, because i became addicted to registry cleaners again, lol. I am not touching my registry for the rest of my life, i promise, thanks to all of you, roger
