How is this done? Do you have an icon for it in the sys tray? After you log on there should be an icon for it there. If it is NOT there there may be a registry entry missing. When it is installed it puts an entry in the registry as follows:- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run Value name = seticlient Value Data = C:\Program Files\SETI@home\SETI@home.exe -min That registry entry should activate it at start it up. It does not need to have a shortcut in the startup folder. If that registry value is NOT there then probably best to reinstall the program as the lack of the registry item may not be the only thing wrong. The next thing is - do you want it to analyse data all the time or only when the screen saver is activated or the window is maximised. Right click on its icon in the Sys Tray and select "Preferences". Look for: "Data analysis runs only when screen saver is active or application window is maximised" "Data analysis always runs [recommended only for fast computers with at least 64MB RAM] Select whichever one you want. If you select the second, it will analyse without any visual display. -- The Aussie Bomber Carn The Dons!! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
