shutting off full screen notifications
Everytime we do anything on Vista which requires accessing anything or even
shutting down the cpu a message comes up that shadows out the entire screen
asking if we intended for this action to take place. While it's great for the
novice just learning about viruses and spyware as well as identity theft
that's great, but for someone who's been around the block a time or two its a
bit irritating. We just got our first vista a week ago. Apparently I'm just
not hitting the right key words in running a search to figure out how to shut
off this feature. Anyone got a clue?

RE: shutting off full screen notifications
Well i understand exactly how you feel. Compared to the BETA versions of
Windows Vista, the final product is less irritating. In BETA versions,
believe it or not there was a long procedure to removing a desktop icon. I
don't believe there is a way to turn off this feature, since it is part of
the Vista security backbone.

The keywords you are looking for are "user account control" or UAC.
Control Panel -> User Accounts -> User Accounts -> Turn User Account Control
on or off.
Or search for "user account control" in windows help.

Thanks for the great tip. I'll call my son on break later and have him give
it a try. Will let you know how it went.

thanks again!

RE: shutting off full screen notifications
I'm glad they got this community up and going. It's going to make it so that
I can learn how to live with the newest OS. I have to get used to it because
of the job I do. We don't use it but a lot of our customers do and I have to
be able to guide them to where they need to go on the cpu. I'd like to know
though who was the genious that decided to change the name of add and remove
programs. What was the point in that. You should have been a fly on the wall
the first time I tried to guide a customer to their for the first time on
vista. I ended up researching on microsoft probubly 15-20 minutes before I
was able to figure out that they changed its name. I just don't see the point
in some of the things they do
