WiFi Guard 1.0.6 won't start   15 August 2015, 22:49

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit.

After updating from version 1.0.5 to 1.0.6, the program won't start anymore. That is, when I open it the exe file, it loads the program and then immediately closes, without showing the program's window even for a moment. (Also, in the processes list I can see that the program was indeed loaded for a moment, but then it immediately closed.)

A few more details:
  • I've tried uninstalling (using unins000.exe) and then reinstalling. No change.
  • The portable version works just fine (both 32-bit and 64-bit).

Thanks in advance.

I found a solution, in case anyone will be interested. I tried a more thorough uninstallation using "Revo Uninstaller Pro 3.1.4", and when I reinstalled Wifi Guard afterwards, it worked. In case it will be of any help, below are a few leftover registry values which the default uninstaller fails to remove.
