Following help from members in the past I turned off the display side of UAC but it still asks,Why?It is a pain in Vista.

Forget UAC and install Norton Labs click here a lot better all round.

Thanks will try Norton Solution.

Not sure why you used a Gadget to turn UAC off. The option to turn it off is in Msconfig > Tools tab. It requires a restart.

MAJ I used a similar program to Norton Previously and in the meantime I have forgotten where I downloaded it from.

It gave you a choice of 3 things to do when you clicked it.
But just recently I kept getting a Security alert to tell me to turn back on UAC. This Norton program as at the moment stopped it asking me.Only time will tell,thanks everyone.

Sorry it is back again.
I am the sole user on this PC.
It is a little message in the bottom Right corner of my System Tray.
It says Windows Security Alert.
When I click on it it says
Firwall On
Auto Update On
Malware Protection On
Other Security Setting Check Settings
Internet Security Setting OK

User Account Control Turned OFF

Go to Control Panel > Security Centre > Change the way Security Centre Alerts Me, then click the "Don't notify me and don't display the icon" option.

There is no need for all this if you are using Norton labs UAC controller.

Just turn on UAC
Install Norton Labs

Norton Labs takes over.....no more UAC or warnings or prompts.

Skidzy I have already installed Norton UAC.
When I startup the Laptop this morning or any startup a message comes up still saying you need to turn on UAC in the security centre.When I right click on it ,I am given the option to exit in which case it goes off but still returns each time I restart which I can now live with.
