Re: How to turn off NVDA

Thank you for the troubleshooting efforts.
We did not select the option to launch NVDA at windows login. But even if it was, sounds like NVDA should not auto-launch after closing unless activated by a person. We did not change any other NVDA default settings.
So we uninstalled and reinstalled NVDA but the same thing
happens - Insert+Q, dialog box open, default option is already
Exit, dialog box closes but NVDA continues to read the screen.
Then when forced to close through the Task Manager, NVDA still
automatically relaunches at various times like launching an app.
This is a new system so it should be pretty clean. There are
very few programs other than what came pre-installed with the
laptop. AVG was downloaded to confirm no viruses on the computer
or on the NVDA exe before we reinstalled. We even checked the
startup options in the Task Manager and NVDA is not on the list.
Our friend really wants NVDA but we are not sure what else to

I suspect the reason NVDA automatically comes on when set to run at the login screen when the secure desktop comes up may be that NVDA loads another version of itself to run when the secure desktop opens. My guess is that there is a relation between this and the setting to automatically run at the login screen. Perhaps one of the developers will discuss the matter.
