   "likes": 2736148

For myself, I am sharing just these:

   "id": "XXXXXXXXX",

   "first_name": "XXXXXXXXX",
   "last_name": "XXXXXXXXX",

An article on Technet help solve my trouble. To stop FortiClient from starting automatically, try the following:

Switch Startup type to Manual.Restart your computer. FortiClient should not be running automatically the next time round. Hope it helps.
