On a Windows 10 computer, F-Secure Key opens automatically after a system restart even though auto-start is disabled.
To disable or re-enable startup programs, follow the methods below :
With the release of Windows 10 version 1803 (the April 2018 Update), Microsoft modified the wording within that Privacy option to emphasize that it will "reopen my apps" if it is configured to be On.
- Go to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options
- Go to Privacy and turn off the setting Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device and reopen my apps after an update or restart
- Open System Configuration using msconfig.exe
- The System Configuration applet will open, click on the Startup tab
- Under the Startup tab, a list of all the programs that are installed on your machine and configured to be run on startup will be listed. Any program that you don't want it to load anymore on startup, simply uncheck the box beside that program's name. If later on you found your self that you need that program to load on startup, then you will have to check the box beside the application again. Also note that in single click you can disable all program that are listed inside the System Configuration and load at the startup of your Windows. This is done by clicking on the Disable all button
- Click on Apply and you will notice that the date on which the selected application was disable on will be mentioned under the Date Disabled column
- Once you click on OK, you will receive a dialog box informing you that the changes will not be applied till you reboot your machine, click Restart to reboot your machine, or if you want to reboot later, then click on Exit without restart
