Game auto-starts when starting windows
« on: March 07, 2008, 11:14:08 am »
hi,

as for Subject, my UFO:AI starts automatically when I start my computer. This is etremely annoying!

I didn't changed any options in the game, and sincerely I don't remind I've seen such an option.

Any idea to resolve this problem?

...the game works fine...

thank you
Mano

You should look if game is not in start menu => programs =>startup.

Manually move the game to a different folder so that whatever is starting it on Windows startup will not have a valid path anymore.

There are many places in windows registry working like autostart, but there's a handy utility to quickly find and check them all: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx.
