The startup entry should be in Startup folder.
Open Startup folder by right-clicking on Start button and select Open All Users and under Programs folder, u can see Startup folder. (If its not there then it might be HIDDEN. )
Now under Startup folder, u'll see a shortcut of Window Blinds.
Right-click on it and select Properties and append -nosplash or -quiet in Target entry.

I'm not sure but it might help u.
Try it...

@ papu...consider this a warning...nothing related to warez/illegal softwares/cracks/crack sites will be tolerated on this forum.

btw...@ yrana2002, there is no way to get through ur problem other than buying the software itself. other ways to bypass it would be illegal and hence i'm locking this thread. if u have further queries, please pm me or any other mod to open this thread. :)



Just the way you can use a Popup blocker to block popups and an Ad-Blocker to block advertisements on websites, there's no harm in using a similar software to do the same locally, provided that the software doesn't hamper the shareware limitations of the software. Besides, he's not asking for features that he would get if he were to buy the software.

One such (legal) software is PTFB (Push The Freakin' Button), which, although doesn't actually eliminate those annoying software messages, will do the task of clicking or closing the box for you- The result? You can set it to close the boxes so fast (as soon as they come up) that you barely even notice them.

Another alternative is to make your own AutoHotKey script which would automatically close any popup you want:

; Popup Blocker - save as, for eg, NoPopup.ahk

SetTitleMatchMode, 2

	IfWinExist, enter-the-title-of-the-window-you-want-to-block

Sleep, 100
Put the .ahk file in the startup and there you go- However, it may happen that WB could load well before the script loads, which would defeat the whole purpose. You may however, remove WB's entry from the startup and make the script launch WB instead, like this: Run, C:\Program Files\Stardock\Object Desktop\WindowBlinds\wbload.exe, C:\Program Files\Stardock\Object Desktop\WindowBlinds

As you can see- these are simple, legal software which are actually used for Automation purposes, which, in your case can be argued that you are indeed Automating a repeated task in your computer.

You could make more complex scripts that do a better job, but that's for you to discover.

Off-topic: Disable the Themes service (Start->Run->Services.msc) to get better performance while using WindowBlinds.
