that doesn't happen with me, which operating system are you using?

I am using Windows 10, build 15063.540 with the free version of Lightworks 14.0.0.0.

have also realised that this only happens when PC is first turned on or re-started.

See pic.

When installing, Lightworks doesn't create a link to its uninstaller in Windows 10 Start-up folder. This folder behaves similar to Autostart in earlier versions. Moreover, no program I know does that. It doesn't make much sense to uninstall a program regularly on startup, does it?

I wonder how you got this link there. Please remove it using appropriate system tools. If it should re-appear without manual interference, please consider a virus on your system.

EDIT: After removing and if you shouldn't find the link to Lightworks executable in the Startup Menu, re-install Lightworks. That should bring the links back into right place.
It's better to travel well than to arrive...

Thanks - will take a look at this - just realised that the uninstall option comes up when the PC boots up and this happens without starting Lightworks ...
