    I'm using a standard account and wanted to change setting in performance
    setting to change special effect but the problem is that even when i type a
    administrator password to allow the changes to happen Vista just won't
    remember the setting when restarting the computer or when turning it back on
    again. Turning off UAC is the work around to this problem. just fix this so
    user does not have to turn off the UAC.

  2. This is a specific example of generic bug-like behavior that is a
    consequence of how UAC works - often a process UI will claim an
    operation succeeded, whereas if you'd denied access at the UAC prompt,
    the operation will have in fact silently failed.

    For example, you move some files from "Program Files". A UAC pops up,
    and you *deny* access. The files are copied out of "Program Files"
    OK, but they're still present in "Program Files" because you denied
    the right to delete them from there.

    If there are contexts where no UAC prompt appears, as is the case when
    items run automatically from the startup axis, then you may just get
    the "silently fail" treatment as above.

    Saws are too hard to use.
    Be easier to use!
