Rainmeter starting automatically when charger connected

Post by rbriddickk84 »

Greetings!

I have a weird issue, against almost every people problems in here, i don't want Rainmeter to start up automatically.
Well it doesn't start when the charger is not connected to my laptop, but as soon as plugged in, or restarting as plugged in, it starts.

I reinstalled Rainmeter, unticked the "start auto" deleted every instances and folders from every possible location before reinstall.

The issue still exist.

For any help i am grateful!

Try the following:
  • Press the Windows key + R key simultaneously.
  • In the opening Run dialog type Shell:startup and click OK.
  • Remove the Rainmeter shortcut from the opening folder. This folder is C:\Users\<YourName>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.
  • If there is no Rainmetere shortcut or removing it doesn't help, try typing Shell:common startup in the Run dialog and remove the shortcut from the newly opening folder as well.
Hope this helps. Does it?

Hi there! :)

Thanks for the reply and help. Sadly i am aware of those locations and both of them are empty. I was clearing all the locations before installing, and after resintall i was checking every possible locations, registry entries, services, etc..
That is why it puzzled me.

I used a different uninstaller, but strangely it works now so far. Very weird that with an uninstall process these kind of things are left in the system.
Anyways, thanks for the help and suggestions everyone! :)

Not sure why you wouldn't just re-install Rainmeter and uncheck this box...

Alternatively, you can just go to:

%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

And delete the Rainmeter shortcut found there.

That was my first attempt in the first place ;)
I tried countless ways, deleting things what humans barely see. xD

Also my startup folders contents emptied as well with the first attempt :)

I deleted registry entries, also other many things modified, etc... but thanks for the help! ;)

I'm not quite sure why that would be. What Rainmeter does when it is installed is place a shortcut to Rainmeter in

%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.

That is all it does, and unchecking that box will remove that shortcut. I suspect that somehow he had another place where Rainmeter was being started, somewhere in the Registry, or perhaps in Task Manager, but it wasn't Rainmeter that created that.
