    I am suddenly getting a warning message 'Windows has blocked some startup
    programs' from the notification area whenever I boot up.

    It is not a major problem, I have googled the problem, I know what to do, I
    know what it means.

    What I don't understand is why it has just started to happen?

    I have run Vista for a long time, it is kept up to date, I install updates
    whenever I am told to.

    I have windows defender turned off, I have an up to date version of Norton

    What has changed ?

    Thanks for all ideas

  2. What files were blocked? Maybe it was a Windows Update that updated the
    list of problem programs.
