W510 Fingerprint Software - Keeps opening after reboot

I have just acquired a W501 Thinkpad. The fingerprint software asks me to scan my finger and then opens up after every boot. Very strange as this did not happen on my old T61p. Does anyone have any ideas re this. The software version is v5.9.2.5912. I note there is a newer version, not too sure whether to download and install or see if I can resolve the issue with this version.

Regards to all

The software opens up on every boot? It might be on the startup programs. Try following these steps: run-->msconfig-->startup tab--> unselect the fingerprint.

Another option might be to check if the program has a "start this program upon startup"


Lastly just update the software using the windows update.

Hope these instructions work

The dialogbox you see that startup on every reboot should have a "Show at startup" checkbox. Try to uncheck that one and it should disappear.

And we're back...
