I'll have to jump in here and state that I tried the CA "EZ" product for
Vista and was dissatisfied. I too get the two requests for UA permission to
run in the Dashboard tray every time I log on. I wrote their support to ask
about it and they basicly blew it off saying it's not their problem. Maybe
not, but something useful about what settings to change or a work around
would have been nice. There are other options, I am going to deinstall the
CA procduct.
My 2 cents.

When i try to click on download one care live 90 days trial, i only get a
message
saying. "Your computer must be running Windows XP". I'm using Windows Vista
RC 1.
