I logged into the guest account, and eraser didn't start up. But it doesn't look like there is an entry for HKCU either:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
No I never had version 5, v6.0.8 is the first and only version I've installed.
There isn't an icon in the startup folder, and the other account (a guest account) has never been used, so there wouldn't be one in that either.
The startup entry is disabled. I uninstalled/reinstalled and disabled the startup to see if a clean version would fix the issue, it didn't. As a clean install didn't fix the issue for me I'm guessing this is a (minor) programming bug that affects more then just my pc.
I've never really played...
With the latest release (6.0.8 ) have disabled Eraser in the startup tab of MSConfig, but Eraser continues to load and show a tray icon on reboot.
Uninstalled and reinstalled 6.0.8, but the issue still occurs. I'm using Win7 64bit.
