        Yes, you are right. I already disabled that "Minimize to System Tray" default option. I might remove the Autostart too.

        Has some rather aggressive defaults, IMHO
        By default, RSSOwl starts when Windows starts, and when minimized it puts itself into the system tray. I don't consider these to be features, but rather something I feel the need to hunt down and disable. Minor nuisances I suppose, but they prompted me to run ad-aware just the same.

        A sweet app otherwise.
