admin and UAC problem

Posted: 01-06-2008, 03:14 PM
After setting up my new Vista Ultimate PC and getting tired of the UAC
prompts I turned it off. I have been an administrator on this system
from day one. After turnuing UAC off and rebooting the computer I
can no longer access My Microsoft Money file, when I turned on UAC I
can agian access the Money file. The sames happens with some "Real
Arcade games that were downloaded. I running the newest version of
Microsoft Money.

Can some one tell me what is happing and how to fix it so I can run
continue to be an administrator and turn off UAC, and still access my
files?

One of the disadvantages of turning off UAC is that certain programs
won't run that way, and that's one of the reasons I recommend against
turning it off. You've apparently discovered one of them. Another
program that won't run that way is the Adobe Reader installation.

You would have to reinstall the programs with UAC off. UAC affects how the
Vista registry and file virtualization behaves.

Ken,
Isn't there a way to set UAC to run continuously,
So the warning doesn't pop up every time?

I forgot where it is,
Jerry

I have to wonder if the problem is virtualization.

Install problem app (Microsoft Money) with UAC turned on. Some files and
maybe resources are virtualized and put in the user folder. Now switch UAC
off and the program can no longer find the files it created to begin with.
That's because turning off UAC also turns off virtualization.

Not that anyone should turn off UAC, but if you re-installed the problem app
with UAC off, it might work.

Another option, you can use a group policy to turn off UAC prompts, but
leave virtualization enabled.

I use tweakuac in silent mode
it turns off the administrator user but not the limited user and i find
EVERYTHING new can be installed with no problems. If you find a problem
then just go into tweakuc- put back the UAC until you install the program
and put it back on silent mode afterwards
