Fences starting twice at start-up?

I notice that "Fences Settings" appears twice in Start-up (via Task Manager). After some digging I found 2 entries that start Fences Settings:

a. HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (in the registry)

b. C:\Users\<my user name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Both start "c:\program files (x86)\stardock\fences\fences.exe", but the registry entry has a parameter "/startup".

Is this intended?

 

(I'm running Windows 8 Pro 64 bit and Fences 2.01)

I'm also running Windows 8 Pro 64 Bit and Fences 2.01.  My system has frozen on my a number of times over the past 6 - 8 weeks (intermittently) and i'm disabling a number of items through the taskbar>starup tab.

I too notice two idential instances of " Fences Settings" expanding both of these reveals "Windows host process (rundll32)"

 

Is it safe to disable one of these cause i'm not sure why there would be two?

It is (was) intended.

I think it was done to address a timing issue.

I believe you can disable one without a problem.
