It is installed on 2 laptops. I bought 2 keys and I don't have the same key on both laptops. And both laptops do this.
I use Vipre anti-virus. I'll add an exception for the anti-virus not to scan that folder.
I have Tweakbit PC Suite. I only use it once a week.
And I just bought Kerish Doctor, so that shouldn't be a factor. This was happening before I got it.
I normally only reboot once a week after my PC Suite maintenance. Right now with the new OS and software giving updates (including Start11) I might have reboot several times a day. I just updated my mouse driver and had to reboot 2 times for that. Going through Kerish Doctor's settings I had to reboot again. And I had to reboot for something else, I forget what. I'm tired of rebooting! Start11 hasn't asked me to activate it again... yet!
Mom uses the other laptop. She doesn't use the Start Menu much. I'm the one it's bothering. I have to get updates for that laptop too. I try to keep them set up the same for my liking. She opens the lid and launches Edge and closes them down and that's the extent of her interaction with the laptop.
