  • How to disable ASC tray startup [SOLVED by ASC 5.2]

    ASC always makes auto startup registry entry in msconfig/startup

    I disabled Auto startup in ASC settings, but it still appears in msconfig every time i start ASC

    Please update ASC5 internally, ASCTray.exe is updated as of today by update, and see if it is doing the same.

    Cheers.

      Hi, All,
      I have unchecked ASCTray in msconfig > startup and also unchecked Load automatically at Windows Startup and Minimize to System Tray in ASC5 > Settings. However, after bootup ASCTray reappears in msconfig > startup and in Task Manager.

        Hi Ted,

        It was same like yours, but after updating ASC5 from "Check for updates", ASCTray.exe is updated and it is no more starting with Windows and not in Task Manager.
        Only startup item of ASC5, without my consent, is ASCService.exe.

        Cheers.

            I update it, but its soing the same thing.
            Update was called "Important patch"

            Will also try with fresh install and report back


            edit:

            Reinstalled it
            Its the same, and I delete every IOBIT folder.

              I get a "Failed to update files try again later" message every time I try to download that Important Patch.

              Okay, I managed to get and install the update this morning.

              Just noticed that I only get the ASCTray checked in msconfig after I've used ASC5. If I don't open the programme the box stays unchecked.
              =======================================
              Would it be okay to follow the following advice?
              The ASC5 Key is there.

              Go into the Registry (Start, Run, regedit) and under HKEY_CURRENT_USER click on the folders Software, Microsoft, Windows, and Run and delete the keys of the programs you don't want coming up.

                I've posted this message again as I had previously edited my original and I don't think it was being read.

                  Deleting that key doesnt help

                  HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run

                  "C:\Program Files (x86)\IObit\Advanced SystemCare 5\ASCTray.exe" /Manual

                  I tried to alter the /Manual with Disabled or Exit, but it doesnt help


                  Someone on this forum must have a solution

                    I'm not sure if this is related to your question but,
                    I'm starting to think ASC-5 sometimes Auto-Loads, even if you have Auto-load disabled in settings?
                    I wonder if Auto-load is getting put or left in Registry when ASC is installed, after an upgrade,
                    before you have a chance to disable it in settings or if it was Not disabled before upgrade?
                    In other words, the Upgrade-Install is Not removing the previous Registry entries.

                      I'm seeing the same thing,
                      ASCTray.exe continues to load.
                      So I ReNamed ASCTray.exe to ASCTray.old
                      and it no longer loads.
                      I see No problems with doing that, since I get no error messages.

                      The /Manual switch does NOT work! :-?

                      I then ran ASC 'Registry Fix' and it cleaned the ASCTray Registry entry,
                      so it will not try to run at Start-up.

                        I just remembered that I Renamed it like that, way back when I did an upgrade to version 4. :roll:
                        Oh well, I've been Asleep a few times since then. :lol:

                        So, it's Not something New with version 5.

                          When I ran ASC today I got a message that
                          An Important Patch needed to be downloaded.
                          I downloaded it and Then I found that ASCTray.exe process had been installed again and was running in background again??? :shock:
                          Does that mean that changes were made to that .exe program?
                          Or is 'something else' going on?


                          I Renamed it again, to see what happens?

                            Hi, Toppack,

                            Same thing happened here.
                            I'm not going to open ASC5 again until it's resolved.

                              Yes, evidently ASC sees that the ASCTray.exe is Missing,
                              and wants to download it again, calling it an 'Important Patch'. :roll:

                              Although it's only adding two more clicks to the loading,
                              it is Very Aggravating, that it's trying to Force us to load processes that we do not want or need. :-?
                              I can not find any other way to disable ASCTray.exe or ASCService.exe, except for Renaming or Deleting them.
