UAC should have been a Business class feature, not for Home Users by JD Wohlever
I hate to say so MS, but your average joe, the person you are making UAC for, is going to do exactly what they are doing, that is turning UAC off. Example, my mother is your basic Internet User. She just graduated from AOL to a normal broadband connection after me telling her for years how much better broadband would be for her. She bought a PC that had Vista Home Premium on it. Suddenly...

Windows cannot find file when clicking on file? by mlsoup
I get the error message when double clicing on misc documents within my folders that says "windows cannot find the specified file, please make sure that you have typed the name correctly and please try again."

Is Windows Vista index-based full-text search powerful enough? by Peter Frank
Hi, I have a couple of questions about the new index-based full-text search of Windows Vista. 1) Is it powerful enough to handle huge amounts of data consisting of PDF documents, Word, Excel and Powerpoint files (around 20 GB)? Or would a third-party solution like dtSearch be the better choice? If this is the better choice, can the indexing by Windows Vista be disabled?

Zip files by Waistcoat
Hi all, I've suddenly lost my ability to unzip files. Vista (business) doesn't seem to have an associated program, and I don't know where to find it. Anyone know? I don't really want to shell out 40 smackers for winzip if I don't have to. I was able to decompress when I had XP, anyone know what happened?

lnk file association by Daemonfyre
Long story short, I'm another one of the dozens of people whose shortcuts and start menu files have turned into unassociated .lnk files. I've looked at several other threads and tried the fix that they point to, namely the .reg fix file. However, whenever I try to merge the file I get an error message that reads: Cannot import C:\lnk_vista.reg: Not all data was successfully written to the...

I'm **S I C K** of this so-called feature and it does nothing but hamper my work efficiency and lower my...

Windows Vista x64 searches 5 times longer than Windows XP! by Dima[_2_]
Hello! Why does Windows Vista x64 search so long, especially when the progress in the bar is at the end and the ring is rolling (a replacement for the sand glass)? When a search is not "nearly instantaneous" it takes nearly forever. That is, when you ask for an Advanced Search of Computer, the bar first goes half-way across fairly quickly. Then it goes more slowly to about 3/4 of the way,...

I am able to delete other folders with a script (like this one): Del C:\Myfolder\*.*.* RMDir C:\Myfolder But I cannot delete a Vista Search Folders like this folder;...

I've setup a folder with the view that I'd like for all of my folders, with Details, Size, Create Date, & Modified Date (turned off Tag since it's of no use to me whatsoever since I can't use it for MPEGS, AVIs, or Real files) and then clicked Tools/Folder Options, then clicked the View tab and under Folder Views,...
