      I confess I had no idea until I checked when you asked. It is on "Default - Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer". When I launched with Run as administrator, a dialog box did pop up asking me if I wanted to allow Toad to make changes to my computer...

The only two obvious places I see that would exit without a message are 1) if Toad detects a cracked key on disk or 2) under some command line actions. Is your shortcut just running Toad.exe or is it also adding command line parameters?

I attempted to open the most recent dmp file in Notepad but certainly couldn't make sense of the gobbledegook - yeah, that's a technical term :) Seems significant but not sure what to do with it.
