Which program is being blocked when ytou start the computer? You are seeing
the blocked startup programs when you boot because a program that requires
administrator privileges is in one of the stsrt up locations, such as the
Start Up folder or a run key in the registry.
Whatever program this is isn't compatible with Vista. You have a couple of
choices that will not compromise security.
1. You can remove the program from the start up location and just start it
manually and give it the required permission, after the system boots.
2. You can use the Task Scheduler to create a task that starts the program
at boot, with highest privileges.
Jimmy Brush has created a utility that will automatically create the
scheduled task for a program that is being blocked at start up. You can get
a description and download the program here:
