Problems with the new vista program and pc games?
I've been trying to install warcraft onto my new computer which has the new
windows vista on it. I was able to play the game once and it is now telling
me I have to update the game which I keep doing. I haven't been able to play
the game since it keeps telling me that I have to update the game. Is anyone
else having problems with their games with this program or have any
suggestions on how to fix it?

I'm willing to bet you're talking about World of Warcraft. Probably better
to be descriptive.

Run the launcher application as Admin:

Right click: run as administrator.

WoW is trying to download and install updates, but it can't install anything
into the program folder unless it is run as an administrator.

UAC bites with games.
