    i think i may have found a possible solution to stop windows blocking
    programs. i had tried many different ways ie, turning defender off,
    using msconfig,etc..etc. Software Explorer did not give me the option
    to enable blocked programs within defender(greyed out) but finally
    after several days i think i cracked it. Disable UAC (user account
    control) here's how;

    Turning off UAC reduces the security of your computer and may expose
    you to increased risk from malicious software. We do not recommend
    leaving UAC disabled.

    To turn off UAC


    Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    In Control Panel, click User Accounts.

    In the User Accounts window, click User Accounts.

    In the User Accounts tasks window, click Turn User Account Control on
    or off.

    If UAC is currently configured in Admin Approval Mode, the User Account
    Control message appears. Click Continue.

    Clear the Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer
    check box, and then click OK.

    Click Restart Now to apply the change right away, or click Restart
    Later and close the User Accounts tasks window.
    This worked for me, i feel in control again (until the next problem
    anyway) hope this helps some-one, it's my first post ever!
