    Re: pc tools tray application


    I had the same message after installing the paid version of Spyware
    Doctor. Finally, one day the laptop refuse to start and Vista went into
    a recovery mode and uninstalled Spyware Doctor. PC Tools was not much of
    a help, so I cancelled my license and got my money back. I'm now using
    Tren Micro Antispyware.:smile:

    PC Tools is some third-party application that apparently isn't working
    well. If you don't want to uninstall it, then stop it from starting with
    Windows. The first place to look to do this is from within the program
    itself. Look for options/preferences. If you can't find that option in
    the program, then use the System Configuration Utility.

    Start Orb>type in Search box:

    msconfig [enter]

    This will make msconfig appear above. Right-click on it and choose "run
    as Administrator".

    This brings up the System Configuration Utility. Look on the Startup tab
    and find the probable culprit. Uncheck the box next to its name, Apply
    and OK out. You don't need to restart immediately, but the next time you
    do you'll get a dialog saying you've used the Utility. Just tick the box
    that says in effect, "don't bother me about this again". Windows
    Defender will probably block this dialog when you restart; just
    right-click on the WD icon in your system tray and choose "Run blocked
    program".

    Important - Do not use the System Configuration Utility to stop processes.

    Look in the options inside of the "PC Tools" program to see if there is
    a option to stop it from starting with Vista.

    You might also look in the startup programs in Windows Defender. Look
    at the "One Way" section for Windows Defender in this tutorial for how.
