Enable AdGuard on Windows boot, but disable protection by default?

I want to enable Adguard to boot with Windows so that it becomes available when needed, but I only want to enable protection when viewing flash videos on the Edge browser in Windows 10. Adguard causes compatibility issues with Kaspersky Safe Money and Cortana search with it enabled. Is there a way to launch the application on Windows boot, but set it to disable protection by default? I can toggle it on and off using the icon on the system tray.

Adguard should save the last state after reboot. So if you disable it and reboot it should start disabled.

One moment about Kaspersky, have you tried disabling encrypted connections filtering in Kaspersky settings?

I figured it out, but disabling it also disables URL advisor and safe money, which I do not want to shut off because this procedure reduces security. But anyway, thanks for the help.

avatar I think whenever the service is restarted it enables protection, so after reboot i think it enables protection......
i will check and confirm this in alpha section later on.

Edit: this was about alpha build, sorry....

@rkkdjb, true for alpha, but as I remember v5 saves state.
