User Account Control
Having seen info on the upcomming Mafia 2 game and thinking it would be a
game I'd like, I purchased (for a song ) the original which is now 7
years old. It runs fine on my fairly new Vista system but what is annoying
is the User Account Control cancel/allow window poping up every time I want
to run it. Is there a way to bypass this window for exe files that I know
are ok?

Thanks,
Alan

Ah, beginning to understand why Vista is crap. UAC can only be globally
turned on or off and cannot be turned on or off for individual programs you
know are ok. That to me is a real crap system!
