Avant Browser Keeps Starting when computer starts

Post by kdavis004 » Tue Jul 11, 2006 1:16 am

Hello,

I have the latest Avant Browser, the problem I'm having is that everytime the computer boots up, it seems that the browser pops up. Is there a reason why it does that? Could it be a Avant Browser issue or an other issue.

Make sure there's no shortcut for Avant in your Start up folder.

Start button --> All Programs --> Start up (Assuming you're using Win XP)

Also,Avant Browser is set as your default web browser?
If yes then some other program may attempt to open some web page in your default web browser (Avant,In that case).
IE8(Pro), Microsoft Security Essentials

Secondary PC same as primary but with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate as the OS.

Download, install and run Startup Control Panel. It allows you to view uncheck any program that starts with Windows, whether it is for the current user only, all users, or run once.
