Stop the Windows has blocked some startup programs pop-up box from showing up in the task bar after you run the msconfig or Windows Defender startup tools.
After you run the msconfig or Windows Defender startup tool and stop a program from running when Windows Vista boots up, an annoying pop-up will appear repeatedly next to the time in the task bar.
“Windows has blocked some startup programs.
Windows blocks programs that require permissions to run when Windows starts. Click to view blocked programs.”
This guide shows you how to stop this pop-up from showing on your computer.
Stop the Startup Programs Pop-up
- Click the Blocked Startup Programs icon located next to the time on the taskbar.
- Point at Run blocked program.
- Select System Configuration Utility.
- Check off Don’t show this message or start System Configuration when Windows starts in the System Configuration window and press OK.
Now you’ll never see this pop-up message again.
I usually don’t link to sites here but I have been looking around for a fix for this and ran across it on itsvista.com.
