MBM start-up problems...

I had MBM so I decided to update to to see if anything had changed. I uninstalled, and rebooted. I installed, set the new driver (not giveo.sys anymore, forget the new name) to System, and rebooted. Set MBM to start w/ Windows, and rebooted. MBM did not start, and RegCleaner shows that no command was placed in the registry to start w/ Windows. I saw very little difference in the program, and since it wasn't starting w/ Windows, I uninstalled and re-booted. I saw that the new driver was still in the system, so I disabled it through Device Manager, manually deleted the file, and then rebooted. I installed (my old version), rebooted, started it up, told it to boot w/ Windows, and re-booted. Guess what? I can't get it to start w/ Windows now! The driver (giveo.sys) is starting w/ Windows (checked in Device Manager)...just not the MBM program itself. I am not sure why it is doing this...does anyone have an idea? TIA...

*EDIT* this is a follow-up...RainMaQer helped me figure this one out...when I uninstalled MBM, it deleted my registry key "Run" in HKEY Local Machine>Software>Microsoft>Windows>Current Version>Run...just had to add the key again...thanks Rain :D
