    Stop these Vista alerts?

    I may choose not to do this full time... but how do I disable the security
    alerts that Vista displays when I start programs or change settings?

    thanks

    Michelle
    I beleive you are asking how to turn off the uac control popup etc if so go
    to control panel>double click user accounts and there you will be able to
    turn uac on and off after you disable it will ask you to reboot. And the same
    applies if you wish to turn on again.
    Hope this helps let me know.

    Are you talking about UAC prompts? If so, upgrade to Vista-compatible
    software.

    You did check your software for Vista compatibility before upgrading, didn't
    you?

    be very careful when turning off UAC
    A lot of programs will not install correctly if you turn this function off.
    You might find you will get error msgs when a program starts up.
    Many programs are built for Vista with the UAC coded into it so it will load
    correctly.

    If you decide to turn it off you can use TweakUAC.
    This turns off the UAC and will also put it in silent mode for the limited
    user so the admin user will not see those alerts but the limited user will
    still see them.
    But before when installing a new program you need to go back to the program
    and turn on UAC then reboot.
    Then you can install the program.

    Where did you get the information that prior to installing a new program you
    need to use TweakUAC to turn UAC on and reboot?

    no, I did not say that
    I said if you "use" TweakUAC to put the UAC in silent mode you "can" use
    TweakUAC to put back the UAC.
    Using this tool is a bit easier than going into Control Panel and finding
    where to put it back on.

    There is no law that says you need to only use this tool. This utility is
    just easier to use than going into the Control Panel and turning off or on
    the UAC

    and because i test software for companies on Vista I found that with the UAC
    off, a lot of sofware doesn't load properly without the UAC on.
    If you have it off and then turn it on- regardless if you use TweakUAC or
    manually turn it off- when you turn it on you should reboot to clear out the
    memory so you do not run into any problems.

    I have yey to ever encounter this problem. Turning UAC of is a matter of habit
    for the past 8 months on every VISTA PC I encounter... there have been NO
    negative responses what-so-ever.

    Re: Stop these Vista alerts?

    I have not had a problem installing with UAC on, or off...
    It's when I change state after installation that causes the problems. Some
    programs, when installed, seem to remember UAC settings and information from
    the installation process, then cause trouble if UAC doesn't match
    installation settings when run.

    Example:
    Turn off UAC.
    Install Word with UAC turned off.
    Run Word.
    Now, turn UAC on, then reboot.
    Now, try Word again.

    Same with Flash Player, Real Player, some AVs, etc. It's problematic if
    you are going back and forth.

    Best solution:
    Choose whether you want it on or not and leave it.
