I have Vista at the moment and I have found the user account centre vey annoying. so I have disabled it. It kept on stopping me going into the internet. Does anyone know if I am now more likely to get virus's from the internet?

I disabled UAC long ago and have not had any problems with viruses, malware etc.(touch wood). As long as you have antivirus and malware programs loaded on your PC and you keep them updated and scan you PC regularly, you will be no more vulnerable than you were before.
