If you set up SABnzbd to run as a service, always use the --daemon option.
This is an absolutely essential option to use for services.

Read the Wiki page on commandline optiio ns for more info.

You don't need -b0, use -d (or --daemon).

I quote from forum member "Usenet":

Create an 'AppParameters' value of type REG_SZ and specify the parameters for your app.
For Example: AppParameters: REG_SZ: -d -f C:\bin\sabnzbd.ini

Doing this you can skip running startup scrips etc..

What i meant was that you should add an additional parameter to the registry, where you store the switches..
Keep the ones you got, pointing out the directory and one pointing out the executable. Then add "my" where you point out the switch for running in daemon mode. OK?

You can just set auto_browser to 0 in sabnzbd.ini.
