I completely agree with you that its a bug. I have already spent 15 days with Palo Alto tech support to resolve Pre-Logon then On-demand but unfortunately tech support is still unable to resolve the issue. Even in my case I am losing confidence on Palo Alot tech support. Configuration in the "App configuration" tab is telling one thing but practically it is doing another thing.
If I choose on-demand but GP Login prompt is coming up then what is the purpose of keeping On-Demand option in "App configuration" tab. This is completely unacceptable.
I will try to help out here a little..
The article was archived.. for many reasons.. which is why no one is able to access the link.
Not only that, it was shared many years ago..
I am very sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause.. but my hands are tied, and cannot re-publish it right now..
But, what I can do, is take some of the content, and share it here..
In order to stop the GlobalProtect client from loading along with other start up applications when the system boots up:
On Windows 10, this functionality has moved from System Configuration to Task Manager. Because of that there are 2 ways to get to this.
From Start > Run > msconfig, then click on "Startup". Notice the link to start Task Manager.
That was essentially what was in the article..
I hope this helps a little..
