Unresponsive User Accounts Controll Pannel
I'm simply trying to turn off the User Account Control under User Accounts. I
just now noticed that the link to turn it off as well as every other
administrative-required (denoted by the little shield) are utterly
unresponsive when I click on them. The problem is solely in under the User
Accounts portion of the control pannal. I was wondering if this was a known

*note* I am the administrator, and the only account on the system for that
matter. I am also not connected to any network other than my own router.

If anyone has any suggestions of patches or ideas please let me know! I

RE: Unresponsive User Accounts Controll Pannel
Well, I just followed the instructions at
to disable UAC, and that allowed me to get into user administration and
create the standard user accounts that I wanted. I then re-enabled UAC, and
things seem to be working properly! - UAC-shielded links now respond with a
confirmation dialog.

I hope this is of some help to you, Ben and Brisuth ...
