JAWS won't start automatically


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

My ThinkPad 410 died hardly 60 days after being converted to Windows 7. It was actually a Windows 7 machine in its infancy, but our IT Department laid down an XP Image. On August 2 we moved up to Windows 7 (and I was starting to like it).
Well the hard drive died, and now, I have a ThinkPad 420. The IS department installed JAWS when I was not around. That person apparently didn't think it was important for Windows to come up talking. So, for the past couple of days, I've booted up in silence; however, I've tried repeatedly to set JAWS to load automatically at log-on.
I've read the help file. Since I am not an administrator, I cannot check the box that says load at log-on. The JAWS help, however, says that isn't a problem. Under "load after log-on (and yes, it does say "after"), I'm to select the "always" option. Unfortunately, I do not have an "always for this user" option. I have only "never" and "all users."
I get a very uncomfortable feeling as I type in my password into silence and HOPE all goes well.
Anyone on the list have any suggestions?
