    I am really starting to get angry with vista at this point. I cant get
    certain progams in my startup to run without having to unblock them every
    time. I understand that microsoft is trying to protect me from malicious
    software, but one promt to block while loged into an administrators account
    should allow me to set it to always allow spacific programs for the startup.
    I'm not talking about other programs just startup.

    For exsample ther is a progam that needs to run on startup to log
    information about my kids instant messaging on a non microsoft messenger. Why
    should I need to watch my kids log in and have to approve these programs
    everytime they boot the machine. These progams should be blocked once with a
    prompt to add to always allow. I cant always be here when they boot up. They
    learn fast to just reboot, and not say anything. the program is blocked and I
    have no idea who they were talking too.

    This is just one example. System monitors like uguru that protect and warn
    about hight cpu, and vid card temps is another example.

    This needs to be fixed or more people will just turn it all off and take
    their chances with a virus scan software and some anti spyware software.

    I love the security tools, I dont want to turn them off, but I need the
    controll to allow startup programs that I approve of to run.

  3. Why not get the kids their own computer (one of the cheap ones)
    Don't hook up to the net,
    Purchase games at the store, they are cheap.

    The wagging tail of a dog.
