RE: Blocked Programmes
Hi Midura,

Thanks for posting in our newsgroup.

From your description, I know that when you logon the Widows Vista machine,
the start up programs are blocked and require permission to run the
program. If I am off-base, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

I am sorry that our newsgroup is focused on the Windows Vista Hardware
Assement issue, please open a new post in newsgroup.
Thanks for your understanding.

I'd like to provide the following information for you.

In Windows Vista, when you run some programs, you will get a pop-up box
offering you to allow or deny the program or require password. You can
avoid this by disable User access control. User Account Control (UAC) is a
new security feature in Windows Vista that requires all users to log on and
run in standard user privileges mode instead of as administrator with full
administrative rights, thus prevent unauthorized or accidental changes that
could destabilize the computers or allows virus and third party software to
exploit the system-level privileges provided to the local administrator to
attack the network security, compromise computer safety and privacy, and
damage files and settings in the network.

To do this

1. Run MsConfig from Run option.
2. In System Configuration window, click on the Tools tab.
3. Scroll down and locate “Disable UAC” option item. Click on that line.
4. Click the Launch button.
5. A command prompt window will open and automatically execute and run
certain process to disable UAC.
6. Close CMD window when done.
7. Close Msconfig.
8. Restart computer for changes to apply and effective.

For more information, please refer to:
