Short message this time as I keep being "chucked out".
3 small but annoying problems (using also Norton 360 and logged in admin rights):-
1 Wanting to view a video report from say click here, I get sub-window with what looks like Media player but with 3 red crosses. At the bottom is "Done but with errors on....Internet: Protected mode on".
2 Have selected say windows explorer to start maximised, but it won't.
3 How can I stop messages such as "User Account Control - Windows needs your permission to....etc"

You would be better off posting this in the Vista Forum provided specially for this.

1)Download and install realplayer (this version click here)

2)Open windows explorer, maximise it, then close again using red x in top corner. Now try again, it should open maximised.

3)Start>Control Panel>User Accounts>Turn User Account Comtrol On or Off>Untick box, press ok, then restart your pc (providing control panel is in classic view

Hope this helps
