Welcome to our community, Maureen
Yours is an odd request! I say that because Captivate doesn't normally insert itself into any startup routines for Windows. I don't believe any such option exists as there is with other software. So it's more than a bit curious as to how yours got to be that way.
Nonetheless, you have an issue that needs resolving. So let's give it a try.
Click Start, then Run, type MSCONFIG into the Run dialog and press Enter.l
Click the tab on the far right and scan through the list to see if you see Captivate in there anywhere. If so, clear the check mark and you should be good.
Give that a go and report back as to whether it worked for you. If not, more detective work is in order.
Thank you for the quick response. However, I have tried this before and Captivate 3 does not appear on the list.
This is rather odd. Captivate will only automatically start if it has been previously opened. The day after I do not use the program, it will not automatically start up. I do not think I had this same issue with the previous versions.
I suppose it's possible that you may have attempted to close Captivate down and for some reason it was still running. I believe that it's a common Windows behavior to restart any applications that were running if Windows is restarted.
I dunno. Troubleshooting is often akin to attempting to capture a mist. Things elude you.
Sorry I wasn't of any help... Rick
Actually, that really makes sense.
When I got to my computer today (at work) I saw that someone had been using it, and Captivate was open. I thought I closed the program before shutting down, but perhaps I didn't give it enough time. I will try a few test runs and see if this is what has been happening.
