Question

After upgrading from SafeGuard Easy 4.3 to SafeGuard Easy 4.40 or later on a Lenovo system, following the first reboot and every boot thereafter, this message dialog appears:



Answer

When upgrading SafeGuard Easy on a Lenovo system, the SGEDEMON service should remove the following value from the registry:

Key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Value: SgeDemon


Sometimes the removal fails, and the error message described above appears as a result.

Workaround
Remove the value from the registry manually (remove just the one value, not the entire key).
