Vista Blocked Programs Fix

Vista Blocked Programs Fix

Many times when you are setting up scanning in vista your programs will get blocked. Sometimes you will be able to work around it but there are times when your setup will have to last just as it is. Now, here is the deal. As you know vista blocks a program and you have to enable it every time from the tray. This kind of defeats the purpose of upgrading to a copier. Automation is the key and this atribute makes your copier look like garbage.

I searched and searched and here is the fix…

Start—-Run—-and type in msconfig.exe

Go to STARTUP Tab and remove the app that is blocked by Vista noting on a sheet of paper where the program is run from. If the program app is run from the startup menu, then just go to Start—All Program Files—Startup Folder and remove the app there.
