Vista - Blocked Startup Programs
So.. you get that annoying pop-up in the taskbar every time you boot up your shinny Vista?
The glitch is to remove that programme from startup - use “msconfig” (search for it in the Start Menu Search).
Then seach for “task” in the Start Menu as well - and run “Task Scheduler”.
You will then need to create a new task. On the right you have “Create basic task”… you will definitely find your way.
- Give it a name
- Trigger: When I log on
- Action: Start a program (& select the program)
- Finish: Open Open the Properties dialog for this task when I click on Finish
Check “Run with highest privileges” and then under Settings tab, “Run this task as soon as possible after a schedule start was missed”.
And no, there is no other easier way.. yet!
