Why do you need a program to do that? Just change the value of the startup entry at

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
cdloader2.exe

to

"C:\Documents and Settings\Your Username\Application Data\mjusbsp\magicJack.exe" /scf _magicJackPersonalDataRoot "X:\magicJack"

Just substitute "Your Username" with your Windows username and X with the letter of the 2nd MJ drive.

I tried doing this and nothing changed, the softphone still pops up. What exactly is this supposed to do?

Magicblock, according to Google, is more for keeping the softphone app minimized. This app should be mentioned in the sticky http://www.phoneservicesupport.com/keep-app-from-popping-up-t107.html

The registry edit mentioned is for loading the app up and preventing the MJ logo window from popping up. However, it will have no effect on keeping the softphone app minimized. If you want to completely get rid of the softphone app, follow the instructions for setting it up as a service. Technically it would still be running in the background, but you would never see it.

Ok, thanks. I restarted the softphone and noticed the splash screen no longer appeared, which is great since it overlayed everything else and is intrusive. I downloaded Magicblock and it works fine.
