Startup Organizer doesn`t show that it`s running, but everytime my computer starts, it somehow loads WFXMOD32.EXE. How can that be?

It looks like the fax program is being started using Windows NT/2000/XP Services. Please look there (using the Control Panel).

Best regards,

Don`t know if you finally found the solution or not, but just in case you didn`t... you were on track in regard to the "services". I found your thread here while looking for a solution to the same problem. Conveniently, at about the same time for some reason WINFAX PRO popped up a warning advising me to disable the item if I was running NT/2000/XP and telling me how to do it. I`m running XP Professional. To disable in XP:

Control Panel
Administrative Tools
Services
Click once on "WinFax Pro"
In upper left corner of window click "stop"
Right click on "WinFax Pro"
Select "Properties"
Set "Start Up Type" to "Manual"

Now, when you open WINFAX Pro from the desktop the wfxmod32.exe file will load. After you are finished and you close the program wfxmod32.exe should close as well. Anyway... works with my system.

Good luck
Beau

Thank you for the tip! We are also adding Services support to StartUp Organizer 2.0 now, so it will be easier to do such things.

Thanks again!
