Dan,
 
Take a break.  I'm now at my favorite time of day: COCKTAIL HOUR.  I've moved into  Miss Kitty's Longbranch Saloon in Matt Dillon's Dodge City, Kansas, for another sterling episode of Gunsmoke and I'm ok with turning Webroot on/off whenever I need Snipping Tool.  I'm easy to please, especially when I'm holding up the bar and everyone is buying me drinks. 
 
Last time I messed with Firefox was in 2001 or 2002 and that drove me crazy for awhile.  Like I said, I'm an easy sort of guy.  Don't like changes too much.  Unless the changer is buying drinks.  Sooner or later someone will call me out on the IE 11 and until then I'll just keep holding up this end of the bar.
 
Thanks for all your help.  I appreciate it.

@ , to clarify Joe's directions, Protected Applications is a different setting than the Allow/Block/Monitor.  Click the cog in Identity Protection, then Application Protection tab, Add Application button, and then select the Snipping Tool at C:windowssysnativesnippingtool.exe
 
Edited to change the file patch per JoeJ

Hi Joe,
 
I was going to suggest that but I tried and the Snipping Tool does not show up with the Add Button but it's there if I look at the location with explorer.exe
 
Thanks,
 
Daniel

That worked Joe! C:windowssysnativesnippingtool.exe
 
So we will see if that helps @ fingers crossed.
 
Thanks,

I don't want to hijack this thread but in order to have the full picture how it goes with blocking/allowing of snipping tools, it should be also said that if you adjust your settings as per the below picture you will always get a WSA prompt to allow or block a tool when you run it.

Pegas,
 
I tried your suggestion and it worked at first to produce the prompt; however rather than immediately allow Snipping Tool permission, I cancelled the procedure and attempted to verify it a second time.

Unfortunately the second time did not produce the prompt, rather the result still blocked Snipping Tool as usual.
 
I then rebooted, checked to ascertain if the Shield settings were the suggested ones from your post.  They were.  Again I tried performing a snip of this webpage, and again Snipping Tool was blocked.
 
So, in my estimation, your suggestion does not work.  But thanks all the same.

Hmmm, strange. I always click "Allow once" when I get the prompt and thus I always get the prompt when Vista snipping tool is run. Yeah, it can be silly but by this way I fully control a snipping tool action.
 
Did you check Application Protection under Identity Protection if by chance the snipping executable isn't listed there with Deny?

Glad that it is finally working!
 
I learned a lot on this one... bookmarking for future reference 🙂
