UAC - File Virtualization (VirtualStore missing) by Simonfr
I’m currently troubleshooting a problem with UAC - File Virtualization in Vista SP1. File Virtualization is not working in Vista and is breaking some applications that previously tested good. The difference with this build is that the C:\User folder has now been relocated to the D:\User. It now seems that Vista is not creating the VirtualStore Folder & and respective sub-folders under...

UAC dennied my install without display dialog box by nicolasc
I do lsf installing on Vista, UAC is enabled, type "lsfmon -install" in command line and will call OpenSCManager(), there is no dialog box displayed and give error "Access is denied". If I turn on the feature "Run this program as adminstor" of lsfmon.exe, there is no problem, so I want to know why Vista do not give out UAC dialog box for elevation. -- nicolasc

Problem with latest update by Benzmum
I installed the update for Defender KB915597 (Definition 1.29.8167.0) on the 28th, and this morning my computer isn't starting properly: it's hanging just before it starts to install my startup items, and I need to use the power button to turn it off. I'm using Vista on a notebook, and I have read that if my computer begins to behave oddly that I should look at the last thing I installed....

Internet Explorer & Microsoft Registr Server issue by PA Bear [MS MVP]
Crossposted to Vista Security newsgroup. ...Ever since I ran the last update on my laptop What updates were installed when you "ran the last update" (e.g., Vista SP1; driver update) and when did you run it? What anti-virus application or security suite is installed? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)? What third-party firewall (if any)?

Buffer Overrun possibly caused by Norton Systemworks? by PHGray
Hello, This is a first for me, getting a "buffer overrun detected" message. So, after researching it, it appears it could possibly be a security issue, but I'm not sure if that's the case as I see online that Quicktime and IE seem to cause buffer overrun issues in some cases, so I'm wondering if it could be software related. Couldn't find much in that regard as far as Nortons goes. I did...

IE flashes "Windows Installer" on startup by BobF[_13_]
Everytime I start Internet Explorer the screen flashes 20 or 30 windows with title "Windows Installer". After that, it works fine. This began happening after installing Vista64 with SP1. The first time I started IE after the install UAC prompted me about 30 times to allow Google toolbar, Flash, and HP to give administrative access. Every subsequent time I just get the flashing. Long ago I...
