The only suggestion I have is that some other program may be interfering somehow. :(

For some reason, on some machines, the configuration keep popping up when the user logs in. Just started happening recently. Can't figure out why. Where can I look to see what would be causing it?

EDIT:

Awesome news on 2.0! I'll check it out soon.

Very nice update mate, everything seems to be working well for me so far.

2.0 seems to work fine for me, except that it's reminding me in the settings that a new version is available.

Anyway, is there any chance to fix the colours of the Shut down and Control Panel submenus in high contrast mode?

Also, if you wish, you're free to include the orb images I made.

the second change is nice, but the first one is not good. Is this the new default way or can I still use the Vista/7 style?

Yes, it will be fixed before 2.0 release. You can check how All Programs flyout (XP style) displays with high contrast mode.

Thanks for orb images, they're great!

Beta testing is not for faint-hearted. :rolleyes: Of course it's not default. Edited by Tihiy

You beat me to it... Going to beta test :D

A new problem:

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition has blocked a page!

Malware detected! Access to this page has been blocked.

Should I report this to BitDefender crew?

Another - if I install with AV disabled,

C:\Program Files (x86)\StartIsBack\StartScreen.exe is removed as threat as soon as AV is enabled.

Thank you :rolleyes:

Gen:Variant.Kazy? What the insane stuff again. It's clear, of course. I'll resolve this issue in next version. Edited by Tihiy

Depending on how many users you have, a possible solution is to put a red warning "Antivirus XYZ wrongly detects StartIsBack as a virus. It's recommended to switch to a better AV product", then watch how fast the AV vendor fixes the problem.
