Initializing TPM by Ragnar
Hello I have only initialized the TPM from Windows since I like to backup the TPM owner information to Active Directory.

Remote Desktops - UAC control - Why? by steveb
Why would running "Remote Desktops" require UAC approval? There is nothing that you can break on "your" machine when running this tool. Please remove this "feature" in the next Service Pack as it is not really a security issue. Please advise if I am mistaken.

Logon screen has my picture twice by Nicos Antoniou
Hello, I have a lenovo 3000 N100 laptop with Vista Home Basic preinstalled. I don't know what happened, but when the logon screen appears it shows my user icon twice. There is only one user account. Furthermore, if I create another user, the icon of that user then also appears twice, thus having a total of 4 user icons on the logon screen. Any idea on what is going on?
