... So you run Vista? It probably went unnoticed, because it's the OS that very few run.  I *may* have a workaround solution for you. No guarantee.

Install this:

Run it with administrator rights. ...
I checked Startup programs in the Vista computer and they all exist and are Running, unlike the entries in Win7.  Appreciate your suggestion but decided not to mess with what is currently functioning, albeit with a few extra clicks.  Thanks again!

... If you right click on the three that says file does not exist, one at a time and left click delete file on the next reboot, only the current version and one instance should load after a restart.
Thank you, techie.  The key word above is "should."  I tried it again as it had been over a year since last time but all instances are still as they were after restarting on my Win 7/64.

Thank you.  My husband chose to run Vista on his computer and I try to keep it secure for him.

Will give your suggestion a shot later (it's 3:45 a.m. here and I hope to get more sleep) unless Corrine posts saying that's one of the things we failed with last spring.

... WinPatrol, as long as it works with the OS, is worth its money, for the alerting bonus alone. Even if it was to be officially anounced that no further updates will come.

Again, i wish the best to Bill Pytlovany.
Bravo! :) :)

I think it is important to remember that if a problem is unique to a single machine, it probably is not a fault with WinPatrol, but some fault or setting in that system. ...
Thanks.  I agree. :)

To be clear, the problems here are on separate machines with different operating systems.  They manifest differently on each (for example, Win 7/64 never displays multiple Scotty icons in the tray).  Corrine concluded that everything a user could do had been tried on both computers to no avail and fault remains a mystery.

I'm grateful to Bill for creating a program that works despite these issues...whoever's issues they are.

onDvine...that is a lot of version two to many ;)
hopefully that gets finally worked out! ...
Thanks, G.  :)   I don't expect it to get worked out and would prefer exiting a few instances of the program in Vista to not having it at all.  Corrine and I tried every trick she knew; uninstall/reinstall wasn't possible on either computer here.

Because posts about our efforts are inaccessible it seemed appropriate to add the snapshot...and one more with this post from my Win 7/64 today.  WinPatrol PLUS is running 4 times in Startup, 3 of which say the file does not exist.  However if any one is disabled, all are and they refuse to be removed.  Still preferable to not having WinPatrol at all.

If the problem link is the one about 'reported bugs,' it's working fine here, too.

Apparently the posts with relevant screen snapshots are on those inaccessible servers.

Just FYI, I did find a screen snapshot from April, 2015, showing how the Vista PC's tray usually looks when it boots.  Sometimes there are only two Scotties.  Occasionally, one.  The gray box to the left of the Scotties is always there until clicked to exit.  Hovering displays "Blocked startup programs," and the program it's blocking is yet another version of WinPatrol Explorer.

WinPatrol does what it's supposed to do but the versions on both computers here have ongoing problems with multiple copies running that I tried to get addressed in early 2015 without any response beyond Corrine's much-appreciated attempts to help (links below).  I won't mess with it or update it further at this point because the program is functional, but you ignored my requests for assistance at this site and by email.  So sorry our lifetime Plus licenses didn't generate any income for you.

Some links to those posts now display the message: "403 - Forbidden Access to this resource on the server is denied!" in a huge font.

Links to a few other posts are below.

I feel as Digerati does, "... from a consumer standpoint, frankly and with no disrespect intended, what you "inherited" is what you "bought into" - hopefully with eyes wide open. So those concerns are not our concerns (at least for those of us grandfathered in with lifetime licenses). ... "
