I'm having trouble with repeated alerts. But they aren't malware alerts. They're alerts that some change has been made. And in every case, they're changes I made on purpose. And upon receiving the alert, I Allow the change in every case, because I made the change on purpose.
But then every time I restart my machine, the exact same alerts are displayed, which I have to Allow every time I restart my machine, just as I did when I made the original changes.
And they seem to accumulate. For example, I might remove a couple of programs from the Startup list one day. Then every time I restart, I have to Allow those exact same changes again. Then let's say I installed some new program a few days later. I had to Allow the change at the time I installed it. But then whenever I restart my computer, I have to Allow the 2 Startup programs PLUS allow the new installation, every time I restart. Then let's say I make some other change, I get the alert, I Allow it. But the next time I restart, I have to Allow the 2 Startups, the new installation, and whatever the 4th change was, and I have to Allow all 4 changes every time I restart!
This happened once before, a year or so ago. But it seemed to resolve on its own. In fact, I don't remember exactly when those alerts stopped showing up after every restart. But now it's happening again.
Is there some way to prevent these multiple alerts? I mean, I don't get why they're recurring after Restarts. Normally I would expect restarting to sort of "reset" the system.
