All security features in a single area idea.

    Why not set up an area in Control Panel of all the security enhancements and
    allow the Administrator / Administrators Group to select which security
    features to turn on and off versus looking all over the place to modify
    security features like Network connections, file accesses, program
    installations, etc??
    The way everything is locked up by default and with a whole new look,
    people and IT pros will have a rough time configuring this to work in their
    environments.

    One of these threads said that you may possibly need to turn off UAC in
    Windows Defender in order for the only administrator account to grant full
    rights to files and folders in certain areas for itself.
    Though this may be a hacker-proof concept, it makes using and administering
    Vista a nightmare and not user friendly at all.

    Put it all in one place and allow the administrators to decide what to turn
    on and off as far as security goes. It shouldn't be this obscure or take a
    long time to figure out where to go and what to do!
