No problem Brent

Basically by default, GAL is on for everyone. You can specify by category which usergroup is exempt if the profile field equates to a particular value.
The idea being that you have a 'premium' usergroup that doesnt want to see the 'popup ads' category, so they have a profile field that they can toggle to the 'off' position to disable the category.
In your situation where you only want GAL to appear for guests, what I would suggest is either surrounding the plugin code in GAL ini with :
//regular plug in code here

or make a new custom profile field with a default value (so when they register, the value gets put into their field. Then make all usergroups except the guest group have the option to be exempt when the new custom field == the default value.

hmmm... I think I may have just confused the situation more

Let me know if that helps at all.
