Default startup programs

Hello,

I am suddenly getting a warning message 'Windows has blocked some startup
programs' from the notification area whenever I boot up.

It is not a major problem, I have googled the problem, I know what to do, I
know what it means.

What I don't understand is why it has just started to happen?

I have run Vista for a long time, it is kept up to date, I install updates
whenever I am told to.

I have windows defender turned off, I have an up to date version of Norton
running.

What has changed ?

Thanks for all ideas

KK
