Using WinRescue 7 on a Windows 7 platform, WinRescue launches on Windows startup.  I would like to avoid this, so I've removed the WinRescue shortcut from the start menu Startup folder.  However, it reappears in that folder.  I would appreciate some instruction on how to eliminate that.  Thanks!

   Go to the Automation tab of Preferences in WinRescue and choose Do Not Perform.
   As you found out, if you just delete the shortcut in the Startup folder, when you start WinRescue, it will put the shortcut back because you have WinRescue set up to start at startup.

Hello Ray:  Thank you for your response.  However, "Do Not Perform" is already selected.  What do you suggest?

   Do Not Perform must be selected on all of the items on the Automation tab.  If all of them are Do Not Perform, WinRescue will remove its shortcut from the Startup Folder.  If one of the items is not Do Not Perform or Use Scheduler, WinRescue will put a shortcut in the Startup folder.
   If that does not work, something that I do not know about is happening on your computer.

Ray: This is unexpected news, and perhaps I am not understanding you correctly.  Are you sayinig that I can't schedule automatic WinRescue backups without having a backup run whenever Windows is started? I have used every version of WinRescue since WinRescue 98, and the automation tab has always been set to perform Config 1 backup at regular intervals, but the Start WinRescue and Wait is set to Do Not Perform.  I never had a WinRescue shortcut keep appearing in the Startup folder until recently.  Even for the first year I used WinRescue 7, this did not happen.

   Nothing has changed on the Automation tab.  I think you have just forgotten how you did it before.
   Any backups that WinRescue runs automatically are run at startup and so a shortcut is put in the Startup folder.
   If you want WinRescue to run at a different time other than at startup you have to have a scheduler do that.  There are detailed instructions on that in Automation section of WinRescue's Help.
   In order to keep WinRescue from putting a shortcut in Startup all items on the Automation tab must be Do Not Perform or Use Scheduler (I did not say anything about Use Scheduler in the previous post because I did not think it applied to you).

That solved it.  Somehow I had changed the "Use Scheduler" option to "Weekly".  Thanks for straightening me out.  WinRescue has been one my most valued applications for more than ten years.
