Samsung Magician on startup - Win7 64bit

Hello,

Not sure where I was meant to post this type of question but I figured here was a good place to start.
So I have a new computer. Its running windows off the SSD(840 EVO 120gb). Every time windows boots up, it asks me if I want to allow Samsung Magician to make changes to the computer.

I know I could remove it from startup programs, however, Samsung magician is setup to run a 1gb RAMdisc as a buffer, theoretically double read/write speeds. For this reason, I don't want to remove it from start-up I want to automatically allow it(auto say yes to it making changes to my PC). However I don't want to automatically allow anything to make changes to my computer, i only want Samsung magician to.

Any ideas?

Thanks Luke.

    Yeah, I actually saw that. However that would mean I'm not running a RAMdisk/using samsung magician to speed up the SSD. Thus why I need to say yes to it. Any ideas?

    Could be your firewall software that's popping up the alert prompt.
    In that case, look for an option in the pop-up to "Always allow" or something like that, or go in to your firewall settings (Application Control Section) and make Samsung Magician a trusted application. I can't give you a step-by-step guide on how to do that as it depends on your particular firewall - but clicking around the firewall interface should help you find where Application Control is (or something with a similar name).
  3. You don't need to have Samsung Magician running for it to use the "ramdisc". I disabled Magician in startup and have not had a single issue.
    Im running 256gb 840 pro, read 1208 write 1189 from AS SSD benchmark without magician running
  4. As rholdcroft99 says, you don't need Samsung Magician to be running so you simply need to remove it from startup list.
    You can view and edit your startup items list with "Ccleaner": http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

    Ahh ok true. Well I've already aloud it through the firewall and it doesn't steal much system memory on idle anyways so I'll leave it there for now. Thanks though
