    For some reason Xfire. (xfire.com). Is being blocked everytime I start my
    computor. How do I keep it from doing this?

    Excuse me for my lack of detail.
    When I boot up Vista I recieve a message "some applications have been
    stopped from starting" in the bottom right, caused by windows defender (the
    quote may be abit off). The pragram it is stopping xfire.exe. Xfire is a
    widely used program. It is similar to MS Messenger Live but more oriantated
    for games. As it allows for message while in a game and gives other game
    information to others.
    I am currently un-able to allow xfire to start on startup which is abit
    annoying but not a major concern.
