Can't delete file in hidden folder even after changing owner by Petrarch
I restored my vista OS using a system image utility provided by Alienware. It created a backup folder on the c drive with all the old files in it, including user profiles. I changed the owner of all files and folders back to my account and tried to delete it, but got the UAC messages that I need to allow administrator rights to do so. After clicking yes, I got a message that permission...

Why ask every time? An unidentified program bla... by Peerke
Sorry but this is very annoying. Installed a program witch needs more then the normal access (like drivers etc.). Get the question at first startup and say its ok, I know the program.

Wireless by Phil Rhodes
When I visit my daughter in the city, my laptop picks up an unsecured wireless link with a park bench logo. I take this to mean it's a public website, and I use it. My question is, who provides the logo of the park bench, my laptop (Vista) or the wireless provider?

How do I disable the Security Center notice about my UAC being off by rowanc88
Every single time I log in to Windows, that bloody little pop-up comes in the notification area saying that my UAC is off and that this is a horrible problem. I know it's off. I turned it off. Why the hell would I be unaware of that? So my question is, how do I stop that annoying notice coming up every single time I start Windows?

is it possible to share the printer only? by Bruce Chambers
wrote: When you turn on file and printer sharing, both file and printer sharing are turned on. Is there a way to turn on printer sharing only? No, there isn't. But if you don't assign sharing to any folders and then grant other permissions to access those folders, they can't be accessed.
