So, none of you are experiencing problems number 1, 3 and 4? 1 is multiple
files and folders to zip creation. 3 is a Windows Movie Maker problem and 4
is importing photos from a camera. These are all UAC related, I disabled it
and I'm not experiencing these problems anymore.
The reason I am asking is that a friend of mine just installed a Vista Home
Premium, with UAC enabled, and he doesn't have these issues. I'm very worried
at this point since I tested on a completely clean, formatted and installed
Windows. No programs were installed.
Not that I crave for UAC, but maybe something bad is broken.
