  1. I can't get Vista Home Prem. to let me run a program without it asking to
    cancel or allow. I set it to work through Vista's Firewall. Now what? I
    use this program 50 times a day, and I don't like clicking that stupid Allow
    Window. Am I missing something. I don't have a user manual. Can someone
    clue me in on this. I may have to go back to XP. Thanks, DK

    This is the User Account control, it is a protection to prevent
    unauthorised programs from running, it works by running programs with
    you as a limited user but recognising that you as administrator can
    over rule it. . You can however turn it off from the control panel by
    selecting the user accounts section where there is am option to turn
    off the UAC. Alternatively you can set the properties for each
    shortcut that you use to start a program to run as administrator which
    effectively bipasses the UAC for the programs you use each day.
