adminpak.msi for Vista? by
I want to upgrade my WinXP Pro to Vista RC1, but I tested in the lab and it removes the Admin tools. I have a 2000 AD. The only way I know to get AD admin tools (AD Users and computers, AD Sites/Services, etc.) is to actually set up Longhorn Server, the make it a DC, then use the tools installed to administer the other domain. Is there any other way?

Windows Live OneCare Takes Long Time by
When I run Windows Live OneCare, it takes about 11 hours to complete. I let it run all night, and it is still running in the morning. The Virus Checker takes the most time. Is there anything I can do to speed it up? Thanks for any help.

Run as instead of Run as Adminstrator by
Hello, Local admins only get the option to "Run as Admin" when using right-click, which uses the account with admin rights they are logged in with. How can we enable them to choose an alternative domain account with priviledges for like running Exchange or AD admin tools on administrative workstations? Thx! Cheers

"Force shutdown from a remote system" by
What do they really mean by this? I was able to shut down a server with no users having this user right, using terminal services. I took everyone out of this user right, and I refreshed the policy then connected to the server via terminal services, and proceeded to shut it down, no problem. What kind of tool does this policy expect the remote user is going to be using to accomplish the...

Vista Re-ACtivation After New HD? by 1nsane
Vista wants to re-activate after I have replaced my smaller HD with a bigger one (I made an exact copy of the old one and transfered it to the new one). So I click Activate and it says it can't activate... I call the automated phone support and it can't activate either. Any ideas?
