Bob Cavanaugh is completely correct. If NVDA is set up to run in

This is news to me, and good information to have. Most of the
folks I've worked with who are using NVDA have their systems set
up to log them straight in to their desktops on system (re)start,
so they're not using that setting.
Several don't even have any screen reader turn on initially by
default, as they will choose one based on what it is they're about
to work with first if one screen reader works with that software
better than the other.
Other than what you document above, which I've never seen because
that setting was not set, I have not encountered NVDA doing a
self-restart once explicitly exited from.
There are a number of possibilities here, but if the situation you
described is known to not have been set up, I still strongly
recommend an uninstall and reinstall to see if that clears things
up, and paying particular attention to the dialogs when installing
so the way you want NVDA to behave is actually set up correctly.
