Smart UAC Replacement 1.0 by Victek
I just discovered a program called "Smart UAC Replacement 1.0". It's supposed to, well, replace regular dumb UAC. I haven't tested it yet and I don't know if it has anything to do with the true UAC mechanism in Vista. FWIW it claims to also work with XP and Windows 2000. I'd be interested to know what others think about this (once you get over the revulsion and disgust g) Here comes...

Hi, all. I'll have to log into the default administrator account, because I can not do anything under the current standard user account status. I went to the safe mode, and tried to log into the admin account, but the password is forgotten. I built the reset password USB disk under the account before.

My documents opens at start up (after downloading RAR) by psu027
I downloaded a RAR file, and while the file did have the files I wanted it also had an "extra" folder, and when I clicked on it I think it's safe to say it installed something on my computer. I ran Adaware, and Spybot Search and Destroy, and removed what was found, however, at start up "My Documents" still opens every time (sometimes in two windows). Here is the log of HiJack This. Can you guys...

Email From Microsoft? by JamesJ[_4_]
I received an email claiming to be from Microsoft Awards Center saying that I won $2m. There IS an attachment which I WILL NOT open. Would it do any good to report this to someone and/or send it to an abuse center?? This email was filtered and placed in my Junk email folder by Windows Live Mail. Thanks, James
