US Robotics Modem and Windows Vista

    I'm using a USR 56K modem. When I boot up my system, I'm asked three times
    to grant permission for the upgraded driver to run. So each time, I grant
    permission.

    When my daughter logs on with her user account she gets the
    same prompts. The problem comes when the User Account Control asks for
    permission to run the R3 Interface. No matter how I set the parental
    controls, it insists on an administrator password to continue. This is a
    huge inconvenience as she cannot use the internet if I'm not home or
    otherwise unavailable to enter my password--which I'm certainly not going to
    share. Perhaps this is a remedial fix that I just cannot overcome. I've
    resigned myself to having to give the modem permission to load three times
    everytime I start my computer, but I'd like to know how to allow my daughter
    to use the internet when I'm not standing there. Anyone?? Thanks

    Have you gone to the US Robotics site and see if they have a updated driver for Vista for your modem

    Yes. This is only began happening after I DID get the updated driver.
