When I started up my PC tonight I got a message from the right-hand side of the bottom taskbar. "Windows has blocked a start-up programme, (DSLMON Application, produced by Gteko Ltd). Can anyone enlighten me on the meaning of this?

Do you have a Sagem Modem ?

If so,this is a false positive and probably one of your anti's has had a buggy update.

Hi, thanks for your reply but I really am a beginner and Sagem Modem, false positive, anti's and buggy updates are 'way above my head.

Basically, allow the service to run at startup.

Thanks for your reply, the link was very, very, helpful. As you know, you are given three courses of action that can be taken when confronted with the Blocked Start-up Programmes, 'Run, Disable or Remove'.I note that you have recommended that I let the programme run. Is this because you know that it is safe to do so?

As skidzy mentioned, it's part of the software installed with a Sagem USB modem. We are assuming that's what you have and yes, that software is safe. If you don't have a Sagem USB modem, or you had one but use a different method to connect to the internet now then it may need removing.

Hi Brundle, thanks for your reply. My modem, the one that I have always had with this pc, is a 'Zoom ADSL USB Modem'. If this is not a 'Sagem' and I am too green to know, does this change your chain of thought?

That file is part of the Zoom modem drivers too. It's safe.
