Multiple Instances of SpeedFan on Startup

Hi guys,

Whenever I login, 2 instances of SpeedFan start up. I only need one. Is there any way to fix this please? I have tried reinstalling but there are still 2 instances. I've already checked that there are no shortcuts to SpeedFan in the user and appdata startup folders, and no Speedfan-related entries in both services.msc and msconfig. There is no setting within SpeedFan to "start with Windows" or similar.

Something somewhere must be telling SpeedFan to start twice. Have I missed anything? Please help!

You might get a utility called Autoruns from Microsoft and look to see where Speedfan is starting from.
