    Re: Anti-Virus programs and Vista

    I'll have to jump in here and state that I tried the CA "EZ" product for
    Vista and was dissatisfied. I too get the two requests for UA permission to
    run in the Dashboard tray every time I log on. I wrote their support to ask
    about it and they basicly blew it off saying it's not their problem. Maybe
    not, but something useful about what settings to change or a work around
    would have been nice. There are other options, I am going to deinstall the
    CA procduct.
    My 2 cents.
