Okay, I revived this thread, hoping for another help, It had been 4 months
long since I posted the problem, still I couldn't get the solution.
My UAC won't work as described above/below (just refer to your sorting
system, ascending or descending)
My Vista is OEM, so AFAIK I can't get support from MS, while the
manufacturer itself, (I presume) won't covers this kind of OS-specific
problem, therefore they will just suggest the 'usage of Recovery Disc' to
restore everything 'all right.
Based from the error message, I believe we could conclude the problem is
located in the registry.
The problem is, I'm just a ordinary user, neither a Windows developer nor an
Windows expert, How could I possibly knew where is the culprit located,
while as we know, Windows' registry is just like jungle especially when we
talk about is size and structure.
Talking about expert, I'd like to say thank to J. Brush, one of MS' MVP. He
kindly trying to help me, even though in the end (I wonder why?) he didn't
reply anything at all, just after I followed his instruction. (He might be a
bit busy at the time
Ok, I'll just repost my problem, to make the issue more clear.
