I have been running this program for years. It's called CHOICEMAIL One. It's used for screening out junk emails.
I have it running on two computers and have moved it from Win.xp to Vista, and now to Win7, where it has been working for about 2 years.
On my Satellite Pro with Win/7 I noticed that it wasn't loading at Startup, so I would manually start it and that was OK, but I can't seem to figure out why it doesn't execute at startup?
I ran MSCONFIG to check if it was activated and it is checked to run.
This is the original version I purchased years ago and never bothered to purchase the newer versions since this one works
very well. It just doesn't load at STARTUP.

By far the simplest fix is to use Windows System Restore to roll Windows back to a point in time when your computer was functioning correctly. It allows you to undo system changes without affecting your personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos.


If that doesn't help, try restoring an earlier system image or backup.

No suitable restore point, backup, or image available? Kick yourself -- you missed the easy solution, and you're left with digging through Windows' many settings.

Hi iagoman,

Before performing a System Restore (as that will revert back many things about your computer, not just this), try downloading and running Autoruns.

This is a Sysinternals tool that will do a better job at selecting/de-selecting startup items than msconfig.

You can drop a shortcut to the program in the Startup folder in Start Menu > All programs.

I opened up the startup via msconfig to verify that the program was checked to execute, it was. Closed and restarted
my pc and all appears to be OK. Who knows? That's MS OS for you.
Thanks for the advise.
I'll make this "solved".
