Not Unless You're Making Registry Changes By .....

say cleaning or deleting, or perhaps doing a lot of new installs. Making changes say by running Msconfig and changing start-up items should throw up an "allow" question.
Also considering how you're answering the question and whether you tick "remember this decision" so it won't bother you again over the same action.
Possibly you've sent the list to archive leaving a blank report list wherein you've made no changes to system settings since.
Of course, if you have Tea Timer disabled it would generate none. Maybe you have TT's icon registered in your task bar settings as
"always show" instead of " Hide when inactive" so you thing its live even tho actually disabled.
One other possible?: Do you have CCleaner or similar and is Spybot listed under applications to be cleaned with each run?
Generally I figure "no reports" suggests a very clean and STABLE system with few if any changes occurring.
I think that's a good thing! Happy

Good catch,I do have CCleaner & spybot is checked

Regarding your statement

"Maybe you have TT's icon registered in your task bar settings as
"always show" instead of " Hide when inactive" so you thing its live even tho actually disabled"

I do not see options for always show or hide when inactive

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
