Doesn't Automatically Start on Windows Boot


New Member
G'day, my AdGuard doesn't load automatically on Windows 11 boot. It's ticked in the settings. I've checked the Start Up items in the Task Manager and it's set to enabled.

Here's my logs. I'd appreciate some help to figure out why it's not loading on boot. It loads fine if I manually load it.

Could you check the startup type of the AdGuard Service? It should be set to automatic.
Please follow the instructions below:

Go to Task Manager (ctrl+shift+esc)--> Services --> Open Services , select 'AdGuard Service' double click and change Startup type to Automatic (Apply the changes), restart PC, run AdGuard app and check if issue persists.
Here's the screenshot.

Alternatively, please consider reinstalling the app.
