A lot of users will want to know, since Bill's kids are such fricking nannies, instead of
recognizing that the end-user is GOD, BillG, is his/her employee, and Windows is
merely *kindly permitted* to run on their private property, to Microsoft's profit.
Open Control Panel.
At upper left, choose Control Panel Home.
Click Security (4-color shield) icon.
Click User Accounts and Family Safety.
Click User Accounts.
At bottom of list, choose Turn User Account Control On or Off.
If you're running (haven't strangled to death) Windows Defender, it will complain hysterically
about your not allowing User Account Control. If you are the only user, the chief concern is
someone hacking in via your internet connection and exceeding the normal authority permitted
to sneak thieves in your house. Whenever you're connected to the internet, be sure a good
firewall program is running (and up-to-date.) Vista has its own. You may prefer to use one
you're used to, that doesn't try to enforce Microsoft's supremacy over its users every thirty
Don't forget to change settings in Windows Defender, so it will stfu about this bug up its ass,
but just show the security icon on the notification panel.
