    I agree that usage will be limited. If someone is checking their email, virtually nothing. Even that hypothetical real estate agent would be brief and probably unlikely. They need reliable data...

    I found the task schedule created when I installed PIAmanager.exe. It was running from my admin account because I was logged in that way when I installed the program. Highest privileges was checked....

    Ok, I am back now with maybe a little time to try some of this out. First, however, one comment and one new, bizarre problem unrelated to the thread.

    The comment: "Run as administrator" = run from...

    Riffraff, the Administrator account is either "enabled" or "disabled". This is clear from the folks elsewhere who want to hide it without disabling it, but cannot.

    However, yours is still an...

    Let's make this specific. Say these are the account names on my system:

    Major oddity/clue:

    I tried a couple of variations of setting up a new task when logged on as an admin. I can get PIAmanager.exe to start up automatically when the admin logs on, but still get...

    Early on in my trials a year or two ago, I did try using the Task Scheduler. I think I set it up from an admin account, as a run on boot for all users. It didn't work to avoid the need to manually...

    I use a VPN service called Private Internet Manager. I want the VPN program (PIAmanager.exe) to start up when I log on to Windows. I normally log on in a User account and the VPN program gives me a...

    I have been using VPN for years because I travel a lot. I settled on PIA (Private Internet Access). It has servers in many countries and good Windows software. One subscription applies to multiple...

    Good comments, Joe. In theory, I assume if someone gets my hard drive they will at least be slowed down with all my data folders on my D: partition in EFS.

    I guess the worry about the file list...

    I started using Roboform last year, somewhat hesitantly, after first trying a freeware password mgr whose name I forget. I now use it all the time. I do have some issues/questions.

    It could also be a permissions issue. Here is a posting I made quite a long time ago:
