Startup Entries

Windows Vista blocks any startup entry which is trying to run after you Log in. Spyware Detector creates some entries in startup which need to run for proper functioning of some of its features like AutoLiveupdate, AutoScan and System tray.

Windows Vista prevents programs that require permission or an administrator password from running automatically when Windows starts. If a program is blocked, you'll see a message in the notification area that says some startup programs need permission to run. You can run a blocked program, remove blocked programs from startup, or ignore the notification.

To Run a Blocked Program:
Right-click the Blocked startup programs icon in the notification area.

Run Blocked Programs

Click Run blocked program, and then click the name of the program you want to run. In case of Spyware Detector, it will be one or all of the three names -

1. Spyware Detector
2. Spyware Detector Tray file
3. Spyware Detector Liveupdate

If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. Click on Continue or Submit as required.

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