Re: How to not start NVDA at login?


You should be able to go into save mode, with sighted help.  You can then uninstall NVDA or, perhaps, someone can tell us how to remove the add on files.

Well if you have a portable nvda on you or can get one and maybe a
sightling to right click nvda icon for you and quit it or end it in task
manager then you can use that and then well run a system restore, or
just clear the mangled file that may work.

Thats probably the only thing I can suggest.

I have had this happen myself with some software I have always had this
happen with some users I have done work for.

I luckily had the system backed up and I was able to reformat and make
the issue go away.

I never really looked into fixing this when it happened to me once
before as after a good reformat it never came back but maybe I was lucky.

To make things even worse, the keyboard doesn’t seem to be working - otherwise I would’ve opened a command line terminal and typed up the command to erase the file in appdata\roaming\NVDA\globalPlugins. Insert+Q doesn’t work either.

Once I log in, I hear the four tones NVDA start sound and right after that my keyboard is pretty much dead. I know it’s my fault, I wrote some buggy addon code, but now I really want to revive my computer.
