    Every time I boot Vista, after disabling some startup programs
    using run>msconfig, I get a tray notification balloon that says
    "Windows has blocked some startup programs, click here to see
    which ones."

    Guess they really don't want you running it your way do they? I
    haven't been able to find out how to disable this "feature," by
    any web search. I know there was a registry edit to accomplish
    this in XP...maybe I'll go over to tweakhound.com and see if I can
    find that and see if it works.

    Any help appreciated.

    I found the answer here:
    http://www.tweakhound.com/vista/tweakguide/page_4.htm
    at the very bottom of that page, and IT WORKED, yeehaw.

    For the un-initiated using regedit, please be careful and
    read this persons warnings about possible consequences of messing
    with the windows registry. Better yet, start at
    the very beginning of his tutorials and read everything, doing
    nothing until you feel you know understand. Will save
    you tremendous headache and maybe even lots of money.

    I'll say he may have had good reason for not describing exactly
    how to make this registry change...as in holding your hand, but
    once you find the entry he refers to, simply highlight "Advanced"
    in the left pane, then go to >edit>new>DWORD (32-bit) Value
    and then enter the quoted text on his instruction page.

    On the boot tab look at the bottom right corner for make this default or
    words to that effect.
