For the last month or so I have been getting a ballon message on my task bar saying "Windows is preventing some startup programs from starting" When I check on which programs it's refering to,, it is Malwarebytes my anti malware software. It blocks it on every start up. Also it will disable defense and security part of my Comodo firewall. Now this only happens when I am starting my computer and once I restart what Defender has stopped it never happens again until I rebooted.
I have turned off Windows Defender in msconfig and the Windows firewall. It says they are disabled but I still get the same results on startup. I am at a loss as to how to prevent this from happening. I know these programs came with the system and can't be deleted but why would this just start happening. I have had the computer for a year.
Thanks for your help
