    UAC= User Access Control
    Without you knowing what it is and where to find it then no doubt you have
    not turned it off and that's what I was wondering. Turning off UAC can cause
    all kinds of problems and there is no long list yet as to what it can cause.
    I thought maybe you had turned it off and wanted to see if maybe this was
    effecting your system and causing you this problem.

    Is your computer system ready for Vista?

    Thanks all. I checked and UAC is turned on.
    I still am getting a Security Alert Icon which tells me that my Security
    Center service is turned off and when I click the button to turn it on, I get
    a small message window saying that "The Security Center service cannot be
    started." Any thoughts?

    As of recently Trend is known to cause problems.

    Replace Trend with the free AVG http://free.grisoft.com/ or Avast
    http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html, and Windows Firewall and Windows
    Defender. Disabling Trend is not enough. You need to completely uninstall
    it.
