After I had installed a number of applications on my Vista system, I had to restart at some point and when the system came back up, a notification popped up telling me there had been some startup applications that had not been run because of missing permissions. Clicking the prompt brought up this window:
Now, for the life of me I can’t figure out what the applications are that are supposedly problematic. The only one that kind of sticks out at me is Skype, but that has been started and is running nicely. The window doesn’t seem to contain any information that’s relevant to my problem at hand, i.e. seeing those applications that have allegedly not been run. There doesn’t seem to be a way either to change any of the settings for the listed applications – seeing that Skype is “Not yet classified”, I would assume I can now classify it. Apparently I can’t. So is somebody else doing the classifying? Huh? Must be me…
Sorry, this blog does not support comments. Why not?
I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.
