Allow User to Disable "Run Snagit when Windows Starts" in SnagIt 2018

I do not want the SnagIt Capture Tab to automatically open when I startup Windows - only when I purposefully need and want the program.  There is a selection in the SnagIt Capture Preferences that allows you to uncheck "Run Snagit when Windows starts", but it will only take effect if you are an Administrator on your system.  I am not an administrator here at work and I don't think this should be limited to only Administrators.  It is a USER preference whether or not this option opens on startup.  Please let ordinary users decide when this pop-up tab is loaded.

Thank you.

Agreed! Even better, don't default this box to checked each time an update is made.

Fortunately, I have a good rapport with our system administrators, but I really hate to have to bother them for something so trivial, but I have no choice.

Please, TechSmith! ...thanks!

Is there a fix for this, we are prepping SnagIt 2019 for unattended installation and would like to have the users be able to toggle this as needed.
