Windows blocked start up programs

I have a Windows Vista Home Basic installed in my laptop. Every time I started my laptop and while it is in the middle of the booting process, I received this error message

Windows has blocked some startup programs

Windows blocks programs that require permission to run when Windows starts. Click to view blocked programs. 

This frustrating situation really made me annoyed every time I opened my laptop. I don't want this error message to appear when I start my laptop. I already asked a help from a friend who has knowledge in computer applications but he wasn't able to resolve the issue. I also asked a help from the website of the Windows Vista Customer Care but it took a long time for them to respond.

And so I decide to fix it on my own if you could help me on how to do it.

Thanks a lot.

Hi Paisley,

  • The reason that this message keeps on appearing because you have changed the settings of which programs are going to start up when your computer turns on.
  • To remove this wait for your computer to turn on and wait for your desktop to load. Then when the notification appears, right click its icon on the taskbar and then point to "Run blocked program". It will show you the program being blocked, what would be the "System Configuration Utility". Click it and then a dialog box will appear. Check the box that says "Don't show this message or start System Configuration when Windows start". Then click "Ok".
  • Once you have restarted again your computer, the notification will not appear anymore.

Windows blocked start up programs

I believe that the cause of this issue is a program with User Account Control limitation is trying to start while startup is in process. A User Account Control stops Malware from harming your system. However, Software Explorer will block any program that needs confirmation of User Account Control.

So to begin, we have to determine what specific program is blocked. Follow these steps to see the list of blocked programs:

  1.  At the notification area, find and click the icon of Blocked startup programs.
  2. And then, select Run blocked program.

Next, we will now solve the issue. There are three ways to fix your problem. Just decide on which of these methods you want to perform.

First method is to run blocked programs after the startup process.

  1. At the notification area, click on the icon of Blocked startup programs.
  2. Then select Run blocked program and from the list, click on the program you choose to start.
  3.  If you're asked for the administrator password, give the password or you may click Continue.

The second method will undergo disabling of blocked programs during the startup process.

  1. At the notification area, click on the icon of Blocked startup programs.
  2. Then click on Show or remove blocked startup programs to start Software Explorer in the Windows Defender.
  3. Find it and click it to be able to select the specific startup program in Software Explorer.
  4. Select Disable and click Yes.

In the third method, you will completely remove the program from the startup process.

>Using the items Programs and Features under Control Panel.

  1. Click the Start button. Find the Start Search box, type and enter appwiz.cpl.
  2. From the list of Programs and Features, click on the program and select Uninstall/Change.

If you can't remove the program from Programs and Features, remove it with the use of Software Explorer.

  1. At the notification area, click on the icon of Blocked startup programs.
  2. Click on Show or remove blocked startup programs to start Software Explorer in the Windows Defender.
  3. Find it and click it to be able to select the specific startup program in Software Explorer.
  4. Select Remove and click on Yes.

Hope the error message won't bother you anymore.
