Startup Extension Conflicts

Most startup extensions remain in memory, working in the background, from the moment you start up until you shut down. This presents a unique challenge for these programs: they must function smoothly no matter what other startup extensions or applications you are using at the same time, and they must not prevent the normal functioning of these other startup extensions or applications. Failure to meet these goals is referred to as a startup extension conflict.

Sometimes these conflicts are easy to diagnose. Other times, they can be very subtle. For example, an application may have some quirk that appears only when you are using a new AutoSaver startup extension while running with virtual memory turned on and the QuicKeys startup extension also installed.
