    This doesn't sound like expected behavior, what application and/or website
    are you using for e-mail?

    Likely your talking about User Account Control, and yes it can be turned off.

    This happens every time email is opened? No, that's unlikely... You don't need UAC for that.

    Since you didn't quote anything of the message to which you were responding
    (as I did above), this is an answer without a question. I have no idea what
    you are talking about or to whom you are responding..

    Notice that I didn't bother to quote you, because I'm directly below you in this thread.

    You use quotes when replying to messages other than directly above yours (which you did).

    Sorry, that's wrong. *Many* newsgroup participants (myself included) don't
    save already-read messages. There is no directly below me (or even directly
    above me, which is where the previous message normally is), because all
    previous messages in the thread are gone.

    You *may* be responding to me, but I'm not even sure of that; it could be to
    someone else. If you want your message to be understood by all of us, you
    *always* need to quote enough of what you are replying to to put your reply
    into context.

    You may, of course, do whatever you want. There are no real rules, and
    nobody can tell you what you *must* do. But if you don't adhere to generally
    accepted standards of netiquette (and that includes *always* quoting), you
    will substantially reduce your audience. If I notice someone who habitually
    doesn't quote, I normally kill-file him, because his messages are almost
    always meaningless to me.
