Here's a program that pretends to help you protect your PC but only causes nightmares:
Smart UAC Replacement

I stupidly decided to try it out. 2 BSODs later (caused by its own system-level drivers,no less..) I managed to slay this demon of a program,killing it forever.

As much as I personally loathe the UAC found in Vista, I've learned to live with it. I poked at it once with a stick and Vista left claw marks on my face.

AMD64Blondie, did you pay for that program?

If you did, you have some problems. That is a phishing and malware site.

Call your credit card company immediately if you did.

I didn't pay for it.(It's freeware-although I don't know why anyone would install this garbage..)
