    New Build.
    Win Vista Business, with all critical updates.

    i.e. "msconfig", is there some way to stop an entry from loading?
    C:\program files\analog devices\core\smax4pnp.exe

    It loads from HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    I have unchecked "always ask before opening this file"; then clicked "run". But when I reboot, the same screen occurs.

    I have disabled User Access Control [ UAC ].

    I am a member of the Administrator group.

    Thanks for your help.

    Sincerely,
    RF123

    It is from my sound card.

    I can't find a "preferences". I can't even find an interface.

    After my initial post, I rebooted, again, with UAC off & unchecked the "ask before running".
    Now, the message does not appear.

    Update. I turned UAC on. The message about smax4pnp.exe does NOT appear.

    I verified that smax4pnp.exe is still checked in the system config utility.

    I think UAC over rode my selection.

    I will monitor the situation. If it remains "fixed", I will return & mark this thread solved.
