LastPass Login Dialog Fails to Open with Browser

I recently ran into an issue with LastPass and Chrome after moving to a new computer. I chose not to migrate my old Windows user profile and settings to this new computer as I wanted to start over with a clean slate. One issue that I ran into early on was that I couldn’t get the LastPass login dialog to automatically appear each time I launched Chrome despite having selected the “Open login dialog when browser starts” option under the LastPass Advanced settings. With the help of a LastPass support technician, we determined that the issue was caused by a Chrome process running in the background. The default behavior of Chrome is to run in the background to support background pages and apps. I resolved the issue by right-clicking on the Chrome icon in my system tray and de-selecting the option to “Let Google Chrome run in the background.” The next time that I launched Chrome, the LastPass login dialog window appeared.
