Windows Months go, I reviewed Windows Vista, and concluded: "All in all, I am impressed by Windows Vista [...]. Windows Vista is better than XP, and definitely more than just an improved look as many say." After 5 months of usage, it is time to put that statement into perspective.

How to Run that Blocked Program

Thirdly, what is up with the "Windows has blocked startup programs" notification balloon? No matter what I do, it keeps popping up after a reboot. There is no logical method of turning it off, and I don't even know what it does, since all startup programs it lists are actually running! So what is it blocking?


Right click that icon. A submenu for "Run Blocked Programs > " should appear... in that submenu whatever program that Windows is blocking should appear. Selecting it should run the program.

It's an obnoxious thing, really.

Or, open the start-menu, type msconfig, go to the Boot-tab, and check Make all boot settings permanent.
