For about a week now the Pc windows XPSP3 starts ok up to the screen background an all the icons ok but no Icons in the right hand bottom tray. Nothing works but after about 15mins all is ok . I have process lasso installed and the little cpu monitor does not appear until about 10 mins in then slowly starts to show some CPU movement then as said all is ok. Done a defrag and av scan nowt wrong bit apprehensive of mucking about with anything other than normal programmes any suggestions please

I don't have a lot of knowledge about process lasso but what I have read it is a "tweaking" program. It also appears to have a feature "start-up" delay - ie: your prgrams start up in a particular order with a specific delay in between. This could be why certain features are not displaying from the start. You need to take a look at the setup again and configure it correctly if you have been changing it.

Download and run CCleaner free

Run the cleaner - then click registry and run the registry cleaner - fix all selected issues do a few times until it stops finding anything.

Next click tools - startup disable everything except your antivirus and firewall (you can re-enable after the next boot if it makes no difference)

Reboot and see what happens.

Malwarebytes is free for personal use.

I've posted here numerous times about the random faults that this dreadful software has caused. If I'm give a computer to sort now, the first thing I do is check for rapport and uninstall it as a check. It can always be downloaded again if it wasn't he culprit.

Wel I only sussed it through elimination one by one of start up problems . I contacted Trustee who then ask you to send them logs granted they give you a step by step guide and /or a video on YouTube. Funnily enough even their instructions dont work each time I tried to paste the second log into the new folder I got File xxxx already exists told them that and not heard from them since .

Just a thought. I've been running Rapport on Vista, 7, XP and 8 with no problems. Lately just 8 and XP on a netbook. I'm wondering if something, or a program, is conflicting with this security app?

Have been using Avast, Malwarebytes, SAS, Spywareblaster on XP and OK. On the other OSs have ran AVG and/or Defender as alternatives and still ok. So I'm wondering if it is TR only that's causing this or is there a third party problem?

Simply uninstalling Rapport fixes the slow issue but why does it happen when Rapport worked before?

As I've said, just wondering what the real problem could be.

rdave - it is odd - I've also seen loads of computers where TR does not cause any problems. Still seems to me that they are using bank's customers to perfect their imperfect software!
