Hi all,
I keep getting Vista pop-ups telling me Windows has blocked some start-up programs, and I've also disabled UAC and keep getting messages to turn it back on. Is there any way to disable these system messages?

Thanks in advance...

Turn off 'Windows Security Center' by doing this:

Start Menu > Run > devmgmt.msc > OK > Find 'Windows Security Center' > Right click > Properties > Disabled > Stop > Apply > OK

BTW why not getting 7?

:biggrin:

Thanks Daniel, tried those instructions but no good, maybe different version of Vista. I have Vista Home Premium.
Vista came preloaded on new PC about a year ago, will definitely be going 7 asap...
Heard from an MS support tech last week to NOT go for upgrade, definitely do a clean install even to the point of deleting the Vista recovery partition...

Thanks

Stop the Annoying "Windows Has Blocked Some Startup Programs" Balloon

So you followed some tutorial that told you to use msconfig.exe to modify your startup items… and now you keep getting an annoying message that says “Windows has blocked some startup programs”. How irritating is that?

It’s not difficult to stop this message from ever appearing again, and here’s the easiest possible way to stop it.

Right-click on the annoying (and ugly) icon in the system tray, select “Run blocked program” and then “System Configuration Utility”

After the UAC prompt, you’ll see this dialog message. Check the box for “Don’t show this message or annoy me again when Windows starts”.

Now you shouldn’t get those messages anymore.
