X-mouse BC opens maximised every boot-up (Win10Pro64)

After a recent automatic Windows 10 update from Microsoft, my wife's mouse started doing weird things. After checking other things, I eventually decided to look for an X-Mouse update in case the old version installed had suddenly become incompatible with the latest Win10. Sure enough, installing XMBC v2.17 fixed the strange mouse behaviour. But brought with it a new problem...

Previously on booting up, X-Mouse always started without maximising the Settings pane. I.e. just available in the System Tray. Now, every time my wife starts her PC, X-Mouse Settings pane opens maximised, and she has to close it to clear her desktop. How can I fix this behaviour?

If the settings window opens on startup, the chances are that Windows is running XMBC twice. This can happen if, for example, you put a link to XMBC in the startup folder.

On Windows 8 onward, you can see the startup items in Task Manager. Have a look in there and see if there are two XMBC start items. If there is, disable one of them. If there aren't, then I'm not sure why this would happen and some more digging will be required!
