We’ve done that, and it works.  I’m talking about starting JAWS at the log-on screen, which comes up first.

Hi all!  I have a quick question regarding what happens when you set JAWS to start automatically.  When you set this up, does that mean that a key is written to the Windows registry.  I have a situation where I am trying to access a virtual desktop and would like it to start talking automatically.  I’m told that they do not want anything being written to the registry, because that is how malware can be spread.  Now before everyone goes crazy over that statement, I can understand that they don’t want programs writing things to the registry arbitrarily.  Their correct in wanting to protect their platform.  No one has said that JAWS is Malware.  The admins are simply trying to protect their platform. 

I’m just wondering if this is truly what is happening when we set JAWS to start automatically.  Any feedback would be appreciated.
