Vista Accounts issue
How do I turn off the constant, nagging requests for administrator
authorisation & permission to continue? I can't even move an icon without
having to click ok in 2 boxes!!

Re: Vista Accounts issue
Hello,

although I don't recommend it, you can turn off UAC which produces the
messages. Go to Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safety -> Turn
User Account Control on or off.

Hope this will help.

Greetings,

Re: Vista Accounts issue
I know, I tried that. Then I just get nagged by the security Centre icon to
turn it back on!! Even more annoying.

As I only have one account, & it's an administrator, you'd think Vista would
realise it doesn't need to ask permission all the time.

I hope MS aren't getting all nanny on us.

Hello,

then, you could additionally turn off the Security center service: Run ->
services.msc -> Security Center .

Re: Vista Accounts issue
Sounds like I'm turning off an awful lot of security to get rid of some
nagging messages. Surely you can just turn the messages off, that's all I
want. I don't mind the security, I just don't like being nagged & babied
through everything. I've been using PC's for long enough to know what I want
to do, without being reminded & asked & re-asked all the time. Doesn't seem
too much to ask.

Go to Control Panel / Security Center. In the Task pane, click "Change the
way security center alerts me". Click the third option, "Don't notify me and
don't display the icon" (Not recommended.

As long as your in there, you may as well go ahead and turn the Firewall,
Antivirus and all of the other security utilities that might possibly "nag"
you, at some point.

Re: Vista Accounts issue
Well thanks for that. I had a feeling that more switch offs were coming, but
I didn't say so, as I didn't want to seem sarcastic.

All I want is for my PC to do what I want, when I want, without asking me
for administator oermissions all the time. Is it so much to ask?

And without the sarcasm please.

Re: Vista Accounts issue
I don't want to switch anything off, that's the point, if you read the whole
thread.

All I want is for my PC to do what I want, when I want, without asking me
for administator permissions all the time. Is it so much to ask? XP managed
it.

It just seems like MS decided to write "Windows for nannies" or dummies this
time, & I know what I want to do, without being asked for permission all the
time. Is there an "expert level" or something, so it just does things?

Re: Vista Accounts issue
Hello,

an "expert level" known from earlier Windows versions doesn't exist. The new
expert mode is, as far as I can see, Vista with a switched-off User Account
Control.
Normally, as an expert, you'll have to modify and switch things on or off,
and so it should be no problem.

Greetings,
P. Di Stolfo

Re: Vista Accounts issue
I've been scanning through the other threads, & this seems to be a VERY
common complaint, UAC getting in the way, or blocking what people want to do.

One of the MVP's (may have been Ronnie Vernon) mentioned in another thread
that even an administrator account has only ordinary privilages, not admin
privilages. Can an account be raised to admin privilages?

I have nobody else using my PC, so have nothing to lose by removing
barriers. As I said before, I know my way around a PC, & usually mean what I
say when I tell it to do something. I even turn off the trash can, as I don't
need safety nets.

MS just seem to have spent so much time trying to make Vista idiot proof, &
hand-holding beginners, that they forgot there are some people who've been
around PC's for years, & don't need or want this level of help.
