Cant load any games

I have just built myself a new PC but I cant seem to run any games. Is there something I'm missing? Its Running Vista home Premium with direct x 10. The specs of the machine are good. It just seems to hang half way through and stop installing.

Please help

First turn off UAC as this can stop programmes installing,though usually at the start.
Control panel>user accounts and 'turn off user account control'
Worth a try,if not post back.
Is there anything in 'problems and solutions' in the control panel to tell you what caused the problem?

Turned off that UAC rubbish and the game loaded first time!

Cheers for that

Is the Game compatible? with Vista

make sure you turn off uac correctly, or you may have privilege problems without knowing it, ie if a window doesnt pop up it may not install the program fully with the correct ownership. use click here in quiet mode. there are many other ways to do it, just google vista file ownership/ uac etc.
if you install a program install as admin, untick any run on finish boxes, right click the exe/ app file in my computer, run as admin, you will only get the warning once.
