Hi, Perry.  Welcome to LandzDown Forum.

When you installed WinPatrol, did you select the option for all users? 

If the problem has continued, you may want to try a fresh install.  First, if you have a PLUS account, launch WinPatrol and click the PLUS tab.  Write down your Username and Reg Code.  Next, go to and scroll down the page to the "WinPatrol Removal Program".  After running the file, restart your computer.  Download and install a new copy of WinPatrol. 

Let us know if this solves the problem.
