UAC problem and camera driver

    Re: UAC problem and camera driver

    the desktop.ini files should not normaly show up, unless you have "show
    hidden files and folders" set in your folder options. I'm not sure deleting
    them will have any effect, but you might want to leave them just to be sure,
    it could affect how your desktop is displayed.
    in case you're wondering how you have 2 files with the same name in the same
    folder, they're not in the same folder. one is in your personal profile, the
    other is in the "Public" profile ("All Users" on XP).

    Not sure about the AV, though. you might try uninstalling it, then run the
    installation program as administrator. be sure to post back here if it works
    (or if it doesn't).

    Re: UAC problem and camera driver

    Kip,

    I have tried to gain access to vista via Administrator account but can't do
    it unless I go through safe mode (which I assume is not the way to install a
    program). I've done many things (google it) but none have worked. I've
    tried setting it to CTL-ALT-DEL to login, I've made sure Admin account is
    active (not disabled) via userpasswords2, I've tried shift-F10 and alt-TAB.
    How do I login as Admin?

    Also, I tried MS Help's suggestion to fix the problem by going to the
    program in question, right clicking, properties, compatibility mode, running
    in Administrator mode, and UAC still complains. Just FYI.

    Thanks.

    Robert

    UAC problem and camera driver

    I installed free antivirus software (THANK YOU CA) on my vista box, but UAC
    asks if it's okay to run each time the computer starts. I turned off UAC,
    and of course the problem goes away, but returns when I turn it back on (I
    was hoping it would accept the virus program because it was there before
    being turned on).

    Is there a way around this? I don't see any where where I can choose
    "remember this setting" and it doesn't seem to save on its own.

    Also, anybody know a way to get my logitech camera working with vista?

    Thanks Robert

    Kip,

    Thanks for the info. Yes, you are right, I have my folders set to show
    hidden files, but they're showing on the desktop. Interesting. I'll try
    the AV solution and will post back.

    Re: UAC problem and camera driver

    Becky,

    I'm beginning to think there is no fix short of turning off UAC, which I
    don't want to do (I think UAC is a good idea). I wish there was a "remember
    this setting" button for UAC, which the firewall/security programs I've used
    in the past always had. Hint, hint.

    Mr. Newt Guest

    Re: UAC problem and camera driver

    Okay, I finally tried to uninstall and reinstall in Admin account using
    safemode (couldn't figure out how to get into Admin account any other way)
    and the problem still exists, so this is not a fix. I will monitor the NG
    to see if someone does come up with a solution.

    In the meantime I see no alternative to turning UAC off. It doesn't bother
    me as much now, though, as I didn't need a password to access the
    Administrator account (and install the virus software) in safemode. I hope
    this password not being required problem is because of a setting I changed
    or because the software is a beta, as it defeats ALL of the security built
    into Vista.

    Re: UAC problem and camera driver

    I still haven't found a solution either. you can set a password for the admin
    account. control panel->user accounts->Advanced
    options->advanced->advanced->users, right click administrator, and "set
    password". (a lot of steps, I know.) when I set up my system, it asked me to
    create a new admin account, and automatically disabled the built-in one.
