1.) Is there a way to make all programs ALWAYS run in adminstrator mode, so i dont have to do it to everything i install, every time?

2.) Is there a way to set up vista, so that when i execute a program that is set to run in administrator mode, it stops popping up that ANNOYING "accept or deny" crap where the screen goes dark, the computer lags, and everything just generally sucks

3.) Why - when you run a program in administrator mode, does it save to a different file location? how can i make it stop doing this.

4.) Why the hell did i ever buy windows vista.

Yes there is a way to do this. Search on the relevant terms, such as Vista, Administrative rights, programs and you'll find a step-by-step methodology.

When you choose 'Run as Administrator', it doesn't save anything to a location, but may write something to your settings.

Did you purchase Vista and install it alongside XP, or did you get it pre-installed on a new PC?

Normally, though, if you installed the program within in Vista it should not cause the accept or cancel message to pop up.

Good luck! (how much memory did you get with Vista?)

OK, well sounds like you got a good system. I'm surprised that any of the programs is asking for permission if it's pre installed.

I have one program that I didn't install, but just copied over that does this.

At any rate, don't sweat it, with that much memory your experience with Vista should be adequate, though much slower than XP.

Good luck!

ok, here we go:

Here is a solution to admin permission:

Here is the solution to accept or deny:Source

Now, good news, windows 7 is coming.

Bad news, it is designed to go "OVER" vista, yes thats right, it is ONLY an upgrade to Vista.
