How to Run or remove blocked startup programs


User Account Control (UAC) prevents programs that require permission or an administrator password from running automatically when starting. If blocked program starts, you'll receive a message that says some startup programs need permission to run. You can run a blocked program, remove a blocked program from startup, or ignore the notification.

To run a blocked program
Right-click the Blocked startup programs icon in the notification area.

Click Run blocked program, and then click the name of the program you want to run. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Note
You'll need to repeat these steps each time you want to run the program after starting Windows.

To remove a blocked program from startup
You can remove a blocked program from startup so that it won't try to run automatically each time you start Windows. Removing the program from startup won't remove the program from your computer.

Right-click the Blocked startup programs icon in the notification area.

Click Show or remove blocked startup programs.

Notes
If a program that you want to run at startup is being blocked, check the publisher's website to see if there is an updated version of the program available that doesn't require permission or an administrator password to run.

Removing a program from startup might affect other users of this computer.
