    I'm running Vista Ultimate and trying to play Halo 1.07, now Halo it self
    plays fine if not better than it did on XP but my problem is that while in
    game I can't use other programs in Halo. For instance I can't speak on
    TeamSpeak (TS is a program which allows me to communicate with other players
    that I'm playing with, I can hear them talk I just can't talk back), I also
    can't use my Logitec G5 configurable buttons (by that I mean a program that
    allows me to assign buttons different tasks like button a will call a ctrl).
    What I'm guessing is going on is that once Halo is up it's not letting
    anything else run in conjunction. Any help on this would be great I've done
    a lot of digging but whenever I try and search halo and Vista I get Halo 2
    Vista lol.

    Are you running Halo as an Admin, meaning did you launch the game with the
    Run as administrator option ? I also heard that you need to run Teamspeak as
    administrator as well.

    Another test you can try, is to turn off the UAC, Go to control panel, User
    accounts, Turn on\off the UAC and see if that works. if it does, then you'll
    need to run those apps as administrator and possible XP2 compat mode for
    them to work correctly in Vista, at least until they release a Vista ready
    version.

    I haven't tried to turn the UAC off but I'll do that tonight as for running
    as admin yes I am doing that for both.

    That was it, unfortunate I kinda liked the UAC although I was probably one of
    the few. Thanks for your help!!!
