Run or remove a blocked Startup Program

book1.pngThe dreaded (UAC) is at it again. User Account Control prevents programs that require permission or an administrator password from running automatically when Windows starts. If a program is blocked, you’ll see a message in the notification area that says some startup programs need permission to run. You can run a blocked program, remove blocked programs from startup, or ignore the notification.

To run a blocked program:

1. Right-click the Blocked startup programs icon in the notification area.

2. Click Run blocked program, and then click the name of the program you want to run. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

You’ll need to repeat these steps each time you want to run the program after starting Windows.

To remove a blocked program from startup:

You can remove a blocked program from startup so that it won’t try to run automatically each time you start Windows. Removing the program from startup won’t remove the program from your computer.

1. Right-click the Blocked startup programs icon in the notification area.

2. Click Show or remove blocked startup programs.

If a program that you want to run at startup is being blocked, check the publisher’s website to see if there is an updated version of the program available that doesn’t require permission or an administrator password to run.

Remember removing a program from startup might affect other users of your computer.
