John The 'Start Jaws Automatically' feature would affect the starting of Jaws as a service on your computer and you probably need local administrator rights to do this, so you need to get the people that look after PC security at your place to give you local admin rights or get them to log in as an administrator and set the 'Start Jaws First' flag for you.
