Hello there. I'm using Vista Home Premium, service pack 2, 64 bit. I noticed the issue after a recent update, but I'm not sure it's related to that.
I may need advice on how to track down a program that's starting Outlook: Outlook 2007 has started running automatically on log in, minimized in the start tray.
I can't find an entry for Outlook or "mail" in any of the following:
All Programs > Startup (this is completely empty)
msconfig > Startup (no entry for Outlook, enable or disabled)
msconfig > Services
> [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Userinit]
> [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]
I'm running AVG, unable to find anything regarding starting Outlook there. I have run Hijackthis and WinPatrol and can only find a single entry for "Outlook" when it's already running. I've opened "Task Manager", and when Outlook has started found the "Process" for it, but right-clicking and selecting "Go to Service(s)" takes me to the "Services" tab with nothing highlighted. I'm not using Windows Defender. Not sure what else might be relevant, but at this point, I'm fairly certain something else is starting Outlook.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks for reading.
