I can't, for the life of me, remember how to disable it temporarily from startup.
I read PP Help, I'm sure it's there, but I can't find it.
I looked on the old (non-CA site), can't find it.
Looked here, nothing ... perhaps I need new glasses.

I definitely don't want to uninstall and reinstall. In the system tray is a way to Unload. But I think next startup it'll come back. I need to be able to enable again manually when I'm done doing some other stuff.

If you have Spybot installed, use its startup tool to disable and then re-enable it, unless of course you can do it right from the program itself.
Regards,
John

Click on the Pest Patrol icon on the taskbar .
Open Pest Patrol. Go to Advanced Settings, and then go in Active Protection. De-select the "Start active protection when my computer starts" Hit Apply > Okay.
Reboot.

quietman7 - I thought it would be something like that too, but I just don't see it :thumbsup: Perhaps the new CA paid version has it? Mine is old (but updates run just fine).

So I may have to do the spybot trick jgweed suggested - gee why didn't I think of it?

Mr Alpha, The sysinternals thing I'm not familiar with, but thanks for the link. Their apps are usually so simple to use, I'd gotta have a look.

With the usual great help from this site, I'm good to go. Thanks to all!!

The main PestPatrol program is only active when the window is open. Other PestPatrol components may be running in the background; such as PPControl, PPMemCheck and CookiePatrol. These components can be stopped and started rather than disabled.

The best way to control these components, is to have PPControl running in the system tray and when you require one of them to be stopped, double-click on PPControl and select the component you wish to stop, and choose "stop" and to re-activate, choose "start". For visiting certain websites, it may be only CookiePatrol you need to stop, to prevent the deletion of spyware cookies which are essential to the operation of that website.

To stop all running PestPatrol components, double-click on PPControl and select "Unload", this will ask if you want to stop other PestPatrol components which are running. Select "Yes" and all PestPatrol components will be stopped until you manually restart them or reboot.

The 'Options - Automatic Scans' tab allows you to control which components are loaded at boot. If PPControl is not already running, you can activate it from here.

quietman7,
Unload does just that until next startup, so I know this wasn't it. But the tail end of your quote is right on the money.

I think knowing that I don't do "Automatic scans" I may well have skipped looking there. But that's PRECISELY what I need. It's that INVOKE ON BOOT on the three controls that will stop it from starting. I'm looking at it as we speak. Million thanks, and sorry for being dense or blind or whatever :thumbsup: Thanks for your patience!
