    windows defender and always allow

    Hi,

    On my vista installation, i installed apache 2.2.4.
    Everytime i log, windows defender blocks apachemonitor application to
    run at startup.

    I've got info that i should have in action menu the "Always allow"
    possibility but i do not have any action menu with such feature.

    So what can i do to make this application not blocked at the startup of
    vista ?

    thanks a lot,

    Al.

    If the program is requesting admin privileges it will be blocked until you
    give permission. It is requesting admin privileges either because it is
    doing something that needs admin privileges are you have set it to Run as
    Administrator. You cannot give permission for it for all future runs. See
    this link for info:

    Error message when you reach the Windows Vista Desktop: "Windows has blocked
    some startup programs"

    Here is one work around.

    I already set it up for running as administrator... but it still asks me
    to allow or cancel it when i log under a non administrator profile

    Yes. That's what Rock said.

    Of course. Choosing Run as Administrator means it will ask for admin
    privileges which will invoke what you see. Telling it to Run as Admistrator
    doesn't the need for permission, it invokes it.
