    hello,

    I am currently using vista build 5384 and I have a rather annoying problem.

    I use a small application called "intelligentwakeup" to boot up my computer
    after midnight and to turn off my computer at 5 am.

    the program works well in Windows Vista but here's the problem :
    Each time my computer boots up the security dialog comes up asking
    permission for my application to run or not... We all know this freezes the
    computer until u either allow it to run or don’t.
    wich basically means I need to be sitting behind the computer to make my
    schedules work . this of course is not the idea so I was wondering if anyone
    knew how to always allow this program to work or if anyone has another idea
    please tell me

    turn off uac for administrators..
    1. start / run (window key + r)
    2. secpol.msc
    3. in the security policy you find UAC settings, one of them is
    "run all administrators in built in admin approval mode" or somethink
    similar..use DISABLED option!
    4. restart and enjoy;P
