Windows Pop Up Message

  peterleay 07:49 04 Apr 2008

I have turned off some programmes, which I don't use regularly, at start-up. But I get a "Windows has blocked some start up programmes" message popping up intermittently. Any way I can stop this message,please?

Thanks for that click here.I had the same problem as peterleay on my grandaughters new laptop and ended up letting them all run again just to get rid of the pop-up.A new laptop and there is 25 programs running at start up.I have saved this to my favorites for future use.Many Thanks.
