SubSeven 2.2 has many more features and a more advanced edit server program. This version of SubSeven has three new ways to auto load with windows. The first is to use the registry as an Installed component (step 2). The second is to make (using the registry) a start up folder (step 3). The third method is to make an explorer.exe in the root directory (step 6). Our advice would be to use a Anti-Trojan program to remove SubSeven 2.2, because it's just nicer to click remove in a program.
