MJ in USB lights up then off on CPU restart?

March 13, 2011 at 09:29:26
Specs: Windows Vista, 4gb
When I start/restart my Compaq 6910p in Vista, the MagicJack USB dongle lights up and then turns off - as if the power was turned off to the USB. As a result MJ will not start until the dongle is removed and reinserted. Then it lights up again, as if there is power now, but there wasn't a moment ago. Once reinserted MJ starts fine but only manually, it will not autorun. This is new behavior. Initially MJ would autorun on insert.

Found and fixed why MJ won't autorun on insert. MS disabled USB autorun as part of their windows security updates to prevent malware from being introduced via stick drives. There is an official MS fix at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/967... Scroll down to find the "Fix it for Me" icon near the bottom of the page. Or read the instructions to fix it manually. I still don't know why Vista turns off the MJ dongle on startup? Or how to fix this one? Thanks.
