Hi!

The program gets blocked by windows defender at start and have to unblock it manually each time windows starts. Is there a way to solve this ?

Thanks

Press the bubble help that pops up in the lower right corner of the screen, saying that some start-up programs were not started.

This will open a dialog were you can allow NoSpamToday! to start.

Yes, I'm doing that, but I have to do it each time I boot. Isn't there a way to star it automatically ? Windows help states that the program should be prepared to execute without permissions.

Thanks

Microsoft did not foresee that someone might need to permanently unblock a startup program.

Here are a few preemptive answers to questions you might ask:

- Yes, NoSpamToday! for Workstations needs elevated privileges, there is no way around it.

- Yes, we could change the way NoSpamToday! startup works. But unfortunately rewriting NoSpamToday! for Workstations like this would break Windows 95/98/ME support. It's in the works, but don't expect it too soon.

There are workarounds, though. Short of disabling UAC and/or System Defender, or installing Windows XP, try to use the task scheduler to run NoSpamToday! after startup:
