Zidnea,

It depends on what type of Vista installation DVD you have.

Retail Full version:
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/117366-clean-install-full-version-vista.html

Retail Upgrade version:
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/68767-clean-install-upgrade-vista.html

OEM (store bought) Recovery Partition: (No DVD)
You will need to check you computer's documentations for the exact procedure, but you usually press something like F10 or F11 during bootup to boot into the Recovery Manager screen to select something like the Restore to factory default option.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Shawn,

At last here's an app that lets you create exceptions for the UAC prompt - without turning anything else off.
I am using it on x64 no problems .

It replaces the UAC prompt - a similar looking widow pops up and you can allow or cancel , but if you tick the "Don't ask me again" box and then the Allow box - that app. will run in future with no prompts.

Two points:

First uncheck the allow submissions box that appears during install process - to stop info. being sent back to Norton.

Second, once I have done the Always allow , I haven't yet found a way to reverse that without uninstalling the app.

It's free from Norton 32bit and 64 bit available

Your view on this would be appreciated as always

Thanks again

Hi SIW2,

I'm a bit nervous about installing anything Norton with all of the trouble they had with their AV program and Vista at first.
There may be a registry entry that holds the exception information. You may have to search using Norton in the registry to see if it is for that program. I'll be surprised if it doesn't have some way to remove a program from it's exception list.

I will have to give it a try later tonight to see if what I can find and how well it runs. ;)

Thank you for mentioning this program.

Shawn

Hi Shawn,

Know what you mean ;) - that's why I wanted to use it bit before bringing it up - works as advertised so far .

Uninstalled and reinstalled it without a hitch. Had a quick look with Nir Sofer's Regscanner - doesn't seem to list the allowed apps in any easily identifiable way.

Still, I know which I want to allow , so it's not a prob, and uninstalling the uac manager returned everything to previous state.:D

Look forward to hearing your experiences

SIW2,

It's a nice little program. I used Process Monitor with it to track down where it installs everything, but no luck either with understanding what is the exception list.

It seems to work perfectly fine for me to.

I understand that it is just a beta right now, but it would be nice if they added some form of user interface to allow the user to add and remove exceptions manually. Perhaps by way of a tray icon.

So far, I say it looks very promising and is perfectly functional now. :geek:

To bad it probably will not end up as a free program when the final version is released. :(

Okay I'm just about rdy to switch to my new computer and install vista home premium on it. With XP I created a single account and it has Administrative rights, didn't do a password and everything went just fine. Will I need to do things diffrently with Vista on a clean install? UAC sounds like a bit of a pain in general since other than my room mates access to a shared folder no one but me uses my system & I like to have complete control including viewing hidden and system folders.

Hi Bratboy1,

UAC can be a pain at first until you have everything setup and installed. After that it's not to bad.

With Vista your administrator accounts acts just like a Standard account except that UAC will then ask you to approve anything that wants to run with administrator rights first. In a Standard account, you must also provide the administrator's password to approve UAC.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

ARRG!! Trying to wrap my head around this and still having problems understanding things. Here's what I want to do:

1. Create a user log/account in of say "Monkeyboy" that doesnt require me to enter a user password

2. Grant "Monkeyboy" complete administraitive access like one can do in XP. Thus not requiring UAC box from poping open when I do stuff.

Sounds like I would have to jump thru some hoops to do this. Or am I making things more complicated than need be?

Hi Bratboy,

Have you installed yet? If not , see STEP 2 of this tutorial. Just enter the username Monkeyboy, leave the password boxes blank, click a picture and click next.

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/117366-clean-install-full-version-vista.html

This should then logon automatically without having to enter anything

I use this to control UAC - it's beta so use at your own risk, but I have had no problems with it.

You may feel that is safer than using the built in Administrator account.

Hope it helps

Hi Shawn.... I have this Dell computer with Home Basic in it. Got scared to do anything with it when the issues re updates broke out and the Windows Update made a mess of the updating process. I just recently discovered your site and taking my first steps to fix/reclaim my machine. Thanks a lot!!!:):geek::)
