Most of my desktop icons, word files, IE7/Mail have this security icon on their right lower corner. I associated that with TrendMicro AV (vista beta version) but uninstall of that software, manual registry cleaning also did not solve it. Does anyone know what is going on? http://img372.imageshack.us/img372/3015/iconszd9.png Sorry about the externally linked image. But there is no easy way to...

Active X problem by Ron Maxey
I'm having trouble downloading a certificate for VPN from my employer's website because when I get to the certificate page, I get the pop-up message that an Active X control is downloading. But it never loads; it just hangs there. As a result, I'm unable to get a certificate, which seems to be the only thing keeping VPN and Citrix from running. I'm running Vista RC1. Any ideas? Thanks in...

UAC / Signed Drivers / etc. are a joke :( by Ryan
Ok, I cannot comprehend what Microsoft was thinking. I cannot install sound drivers. I cannot install 3rd party applications that I paid for that require driver installs. For example, Alcohol 120%. I used that to mount images that I own the rights to. Guess what - no matter what I do or tweak, Vista 64-bit will NOT allow it to install a driver. Same goes for Cubase. I'm driving myself...

How do I install a web certificate in Vista? by Sam Trego

How can I install a Web based certificate in Vista? by Sam Trego
In XP it was simple... when you log onto a site that has a non trusted certificate, you simply had to click "View Certificate" then "import certificate" and it would be installed. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to install this same certificate (to my company server) onto my Vista computer. Can anyone help?

AVG Free and UAC by Rick
AVG Free AntiVirus 7.1.405 seems to work fine with Vista 5536 but I have one question. When I open the application and manually ask AVG Free to look for updates I have to tell UAC that it is OK for this application to proceed. I checked the upgrade executable program's security access permissions (avginet.exe) and everything is checked except "special permissions". What do I need to do...

LAN Settings in IE by DanF400007
I installed Vista RC1 yesterday and has been working fine. This morning I connected it up to my domain and still works ok. My only problem is that if I log on as a local administrator the ability to change the Proxy settings in IE are disabled. This doesn't happen for our XP machines.

Lan Settings in IE by DanF400007
I installed Vista RC1 yesterday and have now connected it to a domain this morning. Now if I log on as a local administrator the LAN Settings in Internet Explorer are grey'd out. Nothing is set the local policy, does Vista apply its GPO's in a different way than XP? Or is this just a bug?

Disabling UAC doesn't actually decrease security? by Roof Fiddler
With UAC enabled in Vista build 5536, I get confirmation prompts in admin accounts, and I get password dialog boxes in standard user accounts. And of course standard users can't read each other's home directories. Then I ran secpol.msc and under Local Policies\Security Options I disabled User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode, and then rebooted. Now, as expected,...
