f.lux disables, then enables after startup



  • Hello,
    Recently, there is a weird occurrence that happens upon logging in. f.lux will initialize and properly set the monitor's color profile ("Reduce Eyestrain") upon startup as it should, but after a few seconds, the color mode is disabled and the regular color is shown. This happens until I hover the cursor over the f.lux icon in the notification area of the taskbar, after which the proper color profile is restored. I am using Windows 10 Pro 1709. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling to fix, but no luck. Further, not sure if f.lux is the cause, but I am unable to access the "night light" feature of Windows 10. I have used the registry fixes such as "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\CloudStore\Store\Cache\DefaultAccount$$windows.data.bluelightreduction.bluelightreductionstate]
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\CloudStore\Store\Cache\DefaultAccount$$windows.data.bluelightreduction.bluelightreductionstate\Current]
    "Data"=hex:02,00,00,00,54,83,08,4a,03,ba,d2,01,00,00,00,00,43,42,01,00,10,00,
    d0,0a,02,c6,14,b8,8e,9d,d0,b4,c0,ae,e9,01,00"
    but while this does help ungrey out the options, Windows does not change the color even when I enable the night light feature. Also, when I log out/restart/restart Windows Explorer, the options are greyed out again and the registry keys must be reapplied. I know this isn't specifically f.lux, but both do the same thing and may be causing issues with one another.
    Is there a fix for either/both?
    Thanks!
    Edit: I have also updated/reinstalled the graphics drivers, but this has done nothing either.
