Well this is a late reply, see that’s the problem right there un educated response by your self, guess you don’t know how to turn it off eh? Control panel/Users turn off User Access control, oh and for the record you can turn off that little red shield that pops up to remind you that UAC is disabled. Google it, just like every one else has to. Educate your self before you go out and buy an OS. Don’t wait for someone to hold your hand and walk you though every step by step instruction,  and I don’t get frustrated I unlike some tend to research the issue find a solution and fix it

So what's the point of your post. Is it to stroke your ego here or tell people maybe and help them by explaining where to go to "turn it off". I bet you're one of those ego trips who gets frustrated by stuff and then counters with an example of why you're perfect and you understand everything there is to know first before anyone else. Why not help others by explaining right in this article how to do so per the other user's comment about UAC being in the way. I'm sure maybe then people will "understand" Vista if they don't know about how to resolve their frustrations and YOURS.

>>>>If you dont like UAC TURN IT OFF!!! people who dont like UAC and complain about it tick me off, just turn the dang thing off for god sake, people who have had problems with Vista just dont know how to use it. I have had no problems with Vista not one driver issue not one crash, and I have built close to 200 computers using vista and did not use all the same hardware.

I'm with you dude, I bought vista the day it came out and was greatly disappointed with, One thing i wish was in service pack 1 they would get rid of UAC its a pain in the ass. I know you can disable it but it consistently pops messages up letting you know its disabled. It seems like Microsoft would have made a better OS after working on it for six years.

Maybe the same rules for the forums should also apply to the comments section as well. :/

Judging by your attitude, just because you built 200 different systems doesn't make you l33t. There have been known issues with some popular hardware not working properly with Vista, so for you not to encounter a single problem sounds either far-fetched or you just built the systems and let the poor users fend for themselves without support. Regardless, you sound more like a n00b than anyone who has much experience and patience and is willing to part their knowledge to others.

Bottom line: if you can't post constructive criticisms, then don't post at all. We have enough trolls in our daily lives and don't need more of them here.

I’m unfortunately one of those schmucks that got Vista literally the day it came out. I was building a new PC at the time and instead of buying two OS’s (XP and then Vista) I made the mistake of figuring Vista couldn’t be THAT bad. I was wrong. I’ve been waiting with baited breath for weeks now for this and to have it delayed again?! Arg! It should be available if we are willing to risk driver issues. Communists.. the lot of them….
