I, on the other hand, want to NOT ALLOW, permanently, but not necessarily
delete the programs. I'll try to go into the startup folder and move these
programs somewhere else for safe keeping.

Yup, I knew most of what you said. The "Launcher.exe" hits on Google were
not clear to me, however, and I fear that if I allow those Acer programs to
run, they will start another process that I neither need or want.. My take
is if these programs are being blocked, I'm probably doing OK without them.
Or maybe their absence are causing other grief I'm enduring. I miss XP Pro,
where I could avoid issues like this! I stopped using Zone Alarm, because
it constantly made me make choices like this!

Programs are blocked by Defender at startup if they are doing something that
requires admin privileges.
Error message when you reach the Windows Vista Desktop: "Windows has blocked
some startup programs" http://support.microsoft.com/kb/930367/en-us
If you want to know what the programs are/do, Google for them or contact
Acer tech support.
