    Ordered? By whom? And why?

    Because there may have been other details that are pertinent that you failed
    to supply.
    Your boss obviously is talking out of his a*rse and has no idea what he's
    doing.

    now and then and prance around in it.

    Running Vista Ultimate - I was ordered to disable UAC. Now I have the
    little red shield in the tray. How can I get rid of it for just the UAC
    notification? I still want it to bark at me when the virus defs (AVG)
    go out of date and it can't update for whatever reason.

    My boss.
    Can I just get an answer to the question?

    How would you like it if you asked for direction and the person asked
    you why you wanted to go there?

    Nevertheless he is my boss and I have my orders.
    So should I wait for one of the MVPs to respond or are you going to
    grace me with your words of wisdom some more?

    Gotcha about Gordy.

    I set it to the middle one, "Don't notify me, but display the icon."

    Now I still want it to bark if the virus definitions aren't updated.
    I'm pretty sure AVG does, but a few times over the years I have notices
    it just goes from the color tray icon to the black and white - something
    people around here won't notice and alert me.

    Was the answer to the OP's question supposed to be in there somewhere?
    Could you quote the relevent parts here?

    Your boss should educate himself (or herself) about UAC.

    There doesn't seem to be any way to do what you want to do via the user
    interface. Maybe there is a registry hack, but I don't know yet.

    There is no easy answer, you can only get close. The order listed
    I listed the sites are as close to relevance as I could get them.

    Sometimes there just are not simple answers to simple questions.

    Err no you moron - there might have been far more to the OP's question than
    he cared to tell us.
    Idiot.

    It's not that easy to disable just the UAC alert, without turning it all
    off.

    Open regedit and make your way to:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center

    You'll need to create a new Dword (32-bit) called UACDisableNotify, and give
    it a value of 1 (either hex or dec).

    To enable it again at a later date, just delete the key.

    Gordons question was indeed valid. You're a jerk and Justin's arrogant
    approach doesn't deserve any help.

  15. If you turned it off, you did the right thing.

    Now, if you hate all the seemingly endless disk grinding that occurs
    when you reboot/restart, look at turning off Superfetch.

    Works great here... and I've notice NO slowdown in performance.

    There never was a UAC problem. You got yourself some other problems
    now, but who cares...

    Gordon can kiss my ass. Arrogance begets arrogance.
    I have the UAC problem solved.

  18. Fair enough. Having read those previously, I didn't recall anything that
    addresses his "problem" specifically.

    ....doesn't mean that they weren't there though.

    Other problems? Yeah, I don't want Gordy's boys coming after me.

    Yeah, sure you would. Let me guess, you own your own company and do
