    Also, try this program to search for and out of startup:

    This utility, which has a knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs configured to run at system startup or login and that the entries in the order of processing windows. These programs include those in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other registry keys.

  • The driver is blocked due to compatibility issues.___Driver: Tages Protection__Publisher: Tages SA___I want to delete this driver. __

    I recently installed a video game (The Witcher) to my computer that has also installed drivers Tages (some anti-piracy software).  I am running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.  The game does not run on a 64-bit operating system.  I uninstalled the game, but whenever I start Windows I get an error message saying that the Tages driver is blocked due to compatibility issues.  The Tages software does not appear in programs and features or in the list of drivers in the Device Manager (I also tried to change the display to show unused drivers and it still does not show).  I want to delete this driver.

    This is a bug with a fix.  For a long time I played the game and visited the forum so I know more exactly details.  But I run Windows 7 Ultimate 64 and the game works fine.  Also, I can confirm that it works well on Vista Ultimate 64.  Go to the official forum of The witchers to seek a solution.

    Here's the question I asked about the order of installation to play the game.

    As you can see, you are supposed to remove Tages.

    See here for more information.

    Alternatively, you can go here to remove Tages.

    The system error prevents you from the operating system correctly?

    I hope this has helped.  :)

  • Qosmio F10: After Vista upgrade common module blocked due to incompatibility

    I was wondering if anyone has a solution for this. I have upgraded to Vista ultimate and have gotten most of the things to work but on each startup, he said that the common module driver from Toshiba has been blocked due to incompatibility.

    Most of the things work it just seems to be media and SD reader card buttons that have no card.
    All ideas welcome.


    This message appears because you have updated the OS from XP to Vista and common modules installed are not compatible with the Vista operating system.

    Is Toshiba didn't publish the drivers and tools for this laptop and it's why some features don't work.

    That's why I don't recommend to UPDATE the XP to Vista, but to clean install Vista on the second partition.
    In this case, you will be able to use the two BONES. XP and Vista.

  • Windows 7 2000 error "this program is blocked due to compatibility issues"

    Original title: Windows 7 for 2000.

    I am trying to install Windows 2000 on a Windows 7 netbook so I can run older programs that are not stable on 7/8.1, but I'm stuck when the program compatibility Assistant gives me a message saying "this program is blocked due to compatibility issues... the installation cannot continue because th version of Windows on your computer is newer than the version on the CD.

    As suggested, a virtual machine would be better for running Windows 2000. More modern is no longer supported by Windows 2000, this is why you probably encounter problems installing it.

    You can use one of the free utilities Virtual Machine to run Windows 2000 on your system:

    You can use alternatives such as Oracle VirtualBox or VMWare Player.

    I have windows 7, 64 bit.  I am trying to install ITunes 64-bit Installer but get an error message indicating that a DLL file is missing.  How can I fix?


    Welcome to the Microsoft community, the best place for all windows related queries.

    I see that you can not install iTunes 64-bit install as it says .dll file is missing.

    I suggest to download the installer once more and then try to install it once more.

    If you still experience the problem, then I recommend you view the query on the Apple support forums. Here is the link for your reference.

  • This driver is blocked due to compatibility issues


    I have the Toshiba Satellite with Windows Vista home edition model. I get the above error message with:

    Pilot: StarForce Protection
    Publisher: StarForce
    Geographical area: not available

    and my laptop also can't find the DVD disc drive. Please let me know the solution.

    Thank you...


    It is a known issue between the Starforce Protection and Microsoft Vista operating system.

    The Starforce driver that is located on your CD/DVD is not compatible with Windows Vista.

    You must find a compatible driver Vista Star-Force.

    I tried to find one for you, but it seems that all Starforce Websites are down.

  • Satellite M70 with Vista - TCtrlIOHook.exe is blocked due to compatibility issues

    Hi guys,.

    Hoping I can pick your brain. I have the Satellite M70 and have (I think) installed most of the new drivers for Vista... but when I boot up I get "this program is blocked to compatibility issues" blah blah blah..., then says that he has

    Toshiba utility programs
    Publisher Toshiba
    Location C:\windows\system32\TCtrlIOHook.exe

    Can anyone of you tell me please
    one) where I can get a driver to solve this,
    (b) stop this message that appears whenever I start

    Thank you



    The TCtrlIOHook.exe belongs to the TOSHIBA Hotkey Utility control.
    All this FN keys needs to control the software and TOSHIBA Hotkey Utility is necessary if you want to use the function of the FN keys.

    (A) If you didn t find these utility for Vista on the Toshiba page then it seems that Toshiba don't provide this software for Vista for the M70 laptops.

    (b) If you want to stop the message appearing at the beginning of the boot process, you must remove it from the OS or you will prevent loading software!
    This can be done in the registry. You can remove entries from the RACE

  • Sygate Firewall (Protection Tages) blocked due to incompatibility with Windows 7

    I've recently updated my laptop from Vista to the brilliant Windows 7 without any problem except at startup, I get an error on the contextual Action Center message saying "a driver has been disabled because of incompatibility" what causes my startup to > 5 minutes (very annoying).
    On investigation, it seems the driver is something to do with a Sygate Firewall and trys to direct me to Symantec, but I use McAfee Security Suite, Norton?
    I think that when I bought the laptop he had 30 day free trial of Norton, which I uninstalled it after a few days, this could be the problem, a left to the thread, and if so how can I remove this for always?
    I looked my with Ashampoo Startup Applications and cleaned my registry etc, but no joy?
    Problem event name is 'ApphelpHardBlock' OS Version 6.1.7600., locale I.D. 2057, bucket I.D 394151033
    Any help to fix this would be most appreciated

    I had this same problem and I noticed with the same message on the Sygate firewall with the troubleshooter.  I spent a lot of time trying to clean the registry and so on trying to get rid of the issue of driver without result.  Then I noticed that the manufacturer of the driver was his TAGS.  I went on their website and discovered that it is a protection for CD driver and so on.  I downloaded the driver, updated, and the question about my computer disappeared.  Take a look at the manufacturer of the driver the next time that you run the troubleshooter.  I'm not a computer scientist, but it worked for me.  Now, if only I can get my external drive to work, I'll be in good shape.  Moreover, after trying to clean the registry and files Norton left behind that I would never install one of their products again, anything is better then the Symantic _ distributes.

  • I started Windows 7 Windows 10 times Acrobat Reader updated to DC.  Now Acrobat Reader DC does not work and I can't reinstall.  The installer says newer version is already installed.  How can I fix it?

    I'm stuck in limbo.  I fell sick of the poor performance and constant crash of Windows 10 and back to Windows 7.  I was warned that I may have to reinstall some software and was pleasantly surprised when nothing seemed to miss.  Then I noticed that the new Acrobat Reader DC icon was just a white icon on the desktop.

    Of course, the reader does not open when I clicked it, then I went to uninstall and reinstall.  No go.  The uninstall program complained that he was unable to find the. MSI file in the path with the big ugly GUID in there.  I really care about the features of cloud of Document in any case, if I am I would like to install Acrobat Reader XI and finish with the DC version.  Again, no go.  The Setup program stops and a message that a newer version is already installed.

    Next, I tried to reinstall the CD think that Setup is trying to fix the Bjorked version on the disc.  No go.  Once again the installation program complained that a newer version is already installed and bailed out without doing something useful.

    So, I'm pretty damn good here because I can't go forward and I can't go back.  Windows 7 uninstall tool think I installed Acrobat Reader XI and when asked to uninstall it still trying to dive into the folder Acrobat Reader DC and can not find the MSI file he seeks even if lead by the nose.

    Setup of Acrobat Reader DC think that some superhuman drive versions are installed and will not install no matter how much I beg it.

    What should I do?


    I have found cleaners and tried both version 4 and version 2 as Windows uninstall although I still have version 11 on my system, but could not uninstall it.  Even after using detergents and restarting, the installation of Acrobat Reader complained that it was a newer version of the PC alreadyon and came out of the installer.

    I finally decided to remove all records of Adobe in C:\ProgramData and that did the trick.  I was able to reinstall the version 11 player, and I think I'll stay with that after the nightmare of all clouds 'features' in Windows 10.
