Win 7 startup: "Do you want to run the following program...

Post by webuser » Wed Mar 13, 2013 2:22 pm

Win 7 startup: "Do you want to run the following program from an unknown publisher?"
Is there a way to stop Windows from asking me that?

Also, when i click accept, it loads the search window OK. If i close it, there remains a shortcut in status bar. In order to bring up again the search window i need to 1) click on icons list, right click on Everything icon and Select New Search window. If I simply click on the Everything icon it does nothing.

Is there a way to make this easier? I.e. a single click and/or shortcut to bring up an Everything search window and avoid the startup nuissance by Windows?

By the way, I have been using this program fanatically for many years on XP.

just similar pain in backside windows.
Is there a manifest file for windows 7 64 bit for everthing.exe yet ?
I think its needed to correctly identify access levels to the OS ?

This message is caused by the Windows UAC blocking Everything running at startup with Administrative privileges.

Does this message occur with Everything 1.3.1.636b or later with the service installed?
