Thread: Windows Has Blocked Some Startup Programs

    Windows Has Blocked Some Startup Programs

    Every time I boot up, I get a 'Windows Has Blocked Some Startup Programs'
    message.

    I know what the program is, I want it to run every time I start my machine,
    so how can I get Windows to let me do so?

    Right-click on that EXE in Explorer, go to Properties. On the Compatibility
    tab, check the box that says Run As Administrator. That should fix it...

    Unfortunately not. I have done this, but it still gets blocked on startup.

    Windows Defender might be blocking the program.

    If that's the case: Click Start, click All Programs, click Windows Defender,
    click Tools, click Software Explorer.
    Make sure the Category dropdown says Startup Programs, and click the button
    that says Show for all users.
    In the left pane, highlight the program that's being blocked/disabled, and
    click Enable.

    Does that fix the problem?

    That didn't fix the problem for me.

    Yeah, I have already tried that too. The enable is grayed out.

    I even tried disabling it and re-enabling it again, but it is still the
    same.

    Andy,

    What if the program is marked as Not Yet Classified and the Enable button is
    not enabled?

    I'm told that Not Yet Classified means that MS hasn't analyzed the software
    yet. If Enable has been grayed out, it means the item has not yet been
    disabled. If it had been disabled, the Classification column will say
    disabled.

    Hi, haydon this looks like a good permanent fix, just use task manager
    instead...

    Re: Windows Has Blocked Some Startup Programs

    What if both "Enable" and "Disable" are grayed out? (Classifications is "Not
    Yet Classified")

    The shortcut is in startup, it is set to 'run as admin' in advanced
    settings.
    In Defender the available option is Disable, so it's not a defender issue.

    There is a proper solution to this problem, using Task Scheduler. See:

    Re: Windows Has Blocked Some Startup Programs

    And the justification for having that kind of bug in release software would
    be what?
    If I spefically give a program permission to run at startup, and even go
    through the step of telling it to 'run as admin'; I shouldn't have to make
    it a scheduled task.
    While I appreciate knowing the workaround, I consider that a major flaw in
    this Alpha 2 release of Vista.
