Call of Duty 4 and UAC

  Widow's Son 13:09 02 Nov 2008

I'm running vista 64bit Home premium

The UAC is driving me nuts - with it on even things like winamp misbehave - I can't start it without a pop up and can't drag items into the playlist. I'd happily turn it off even if this does slightly increase the vulnerability of my pc

The problem is that if I turn off the UAC my profile in COD4 disappears. It reappears if I turn it back on but this needs a reboot.

Do I either have to put up with UAC or start from scratch in COD4 or can I somewhere transfer my profile?

i played COD4 ok without UAC on 32bit Vista Ultimate. Try completely uninstalling the game, turn of UAC, reboot and reinstall. Also make a backup of your profile, you may need to start the game from scratch with a new profile
