it's not GOG's fault it's micro$oft, like EXOHASARD wrote <br /> what you need to do is to edit the way shutdown button behaves via script override, to achieve that open Group Policy Management Console go to Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Scripts (Startup/Shutdown) the add script to shutdown command shutdown.exe /p , make it run first, problem solved

Same. It seemed to just start happening after I updated galaxy a few days ago. I usually only used web browser and didn't have issue prior to galaxy update, but after updating galaxy loads at startup, regardless of whether the galaxy option box for running it at startup is checked.

Same problem, it's getting really irritating. Want a clean start up with nothing booted, but freaking galaxy client keeps booting itself whether option is ticked or not.

Disabling autostart in the GOG Galaxy options page does not work on Windows 10 - it's still autostarted on every boot.

Apparently the solution I posted below didn't work after all, and I can't delete nor edit my comment below because of ???????. So here's what the actual problem was about: Windows 10 Fall Update decided, in one of the weirdest decisions made by Microsoft in recent years, to make it so that the Start menu's shutdown function does not actually shut down the computer! Instead it keeps it in some kind of hibernation state. Basically they changed the Start menu shutdown's function from "shutdown /s" to "shutdown /sg", which is a hibernation function of sorts. "Solution": When you want to shut down your PC for real, you need to find another way to shut down the PC from now on, e.g. to use the PC's physical shutdown button.

It pleases me to say that I have found the culprit, of why it looked to many people (Me included) like Galaxy has recently disrespected those who turned off autostart. <br /> <br /> It turned out that Intel Management Engine Interface v11 got poorly along with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update as of at the time of writing, leading to the former refusing to fully shut down during regular PC shutdowns. This in turn made it so that programs that were open at the time of shutdown (which usually included Galaxy, due to its tray helper), would start up again on the next boot. <br /> <br /> The solution that worked for me: Go to Device Manager → System Devices, and uninstall Intel Management Engine Interface and its driver. For those who explicity rely on IMEI's administration functions, it has been reported that v9 of it does not have the boot bug.

Yep - I've noticed this over the last two days - option is definitely not working and the client automatically boots on startup, whether the option box is ticked or not. PLEASE FIX.

YEah, no. I tried clicking that about 100 times. It does nothing on my version of galaxy clocking the Galaxy button is clearly supposed to do something, but it does not bring up an options menu for me.

@MOURPH i agree only thing different for me is i'm giving my isp the boot (financial reasons + they got debt collectors to make me pay money that one of their employees said i didn't need to pay, about £20) and am going to use my phone to connect to the net, so anything that starts downloading without my knowledge would cost me extra , <br /> <br /> out of curiosity what games force you to install galaxy?

Found it. The problem is, there's another settings window, the one reached by clicking your account name. That's the one that's actually skinned like a modern application, not like a Windows 95 era theme. No one's going to click the GOG logo to try to find a second settings menu, because it's logical to assume the program developers aren't batshit crazy. Bad assumption, I guess.

Couldn't find any option to disable this in the client. If it's there it's incredibly well hidden. Forcing the app to start on boot is gross and I've uninstalled it until this is fixed (I'll check this thread as I'd like to play Gwent, but not every day!).

Disable it at startup. what makes you think every time i boot i want to download your current 100MB update while i'm trying to get seomthing done. *&$% like this is why people uninstall and get so emotional about dumb coders and stupid product decisions. heaven forbid someone had to click to run gog galaxy like a normal app.! it must be running at all times. /dumb /dumbthere /dumbeverywhere (yeah talking to you product guy who decides this)

The option already exists. And those complaining about autostart being the default, are you really that lazy to just turn it off? I don't see what the big deal is.

@Trilarion: Well, certainly the number of users who want the galaxy client window to appear on boot up must be very small, anyway, compared to those who do not.

The option is there now. Now we need another option to autostart minimized (or make minimized the default). Nobody (my estimation) wants to see an open Galaxy upon start.

I support the idea that the default for the client should be set to off for autostart. That said the client does already have an option to turn off the autostart as the other post already mentions, but this should not be accepted as is.

This should be off by default. I know Steam and many other programs do this, but it's really quite arrogant to assume that your app is so central to the computing experience of all their users that they should start up by default. Worse, when a lot of installed programs start at launch, it really degrades the performance of the computer during startup. <br /> <br /> I worked tech support for a few years, and I got many requests from customers asking how to stop apps from starting at startup. This even included apps you would think users would always want on, such as AIM and MSN Messenger. I never had a user ask how to turn on launch at start functionality. It seemed to me that most users wanted to launch and quit programs on their own terms, and those who truly wanted these apps to start at launch were savvy enough to figure it out on their own, while those who did not want that behavior often needed help turning it off.
