Windows 10: Speedfan Will Not Run at Boot Solved

    Speedfan Will Not Run at Boot

    I use a little program called LCD Smartie to give me a separate screen display of Temps, voltages, CPU load, etc. on a small LCD screen. It works just fine, but needs Speedfan to run to get the temps and fan speeds. That's the problem.

    Speedfan has to run from the Startup folder in %Userprofiles%\Appdata\Roaming\MIcrosoft\Windows\...\Startup

    No matter what I try it won't work. I looked at a couple of posts here on the forums after doing a search, but they were no help in my situation. One thing I have noticed is that in running Speedfan on it's own (not at boot), it comes up with a UAC window. Could this be the problem? Do I have to run it with elevated privilege? I had heard that you can't run elevated privilege programs from Startup.

    If anyone can help, any assistance will be gratefully received.

    EDIT: NVM fixed.
