Tame User Account Control Warnings

Appears on page 141 of the latest PCA and refers to typing secpol.msc to obtain the Local Security Policy Editor.

Anybody else tried this yet?

My PC can't find it!

It looks as if secpol.msc may not exist in Vista Premium Home Edition!

Try doing a lot of things in Vista - and you can't ---
Things you know are there but have no access to - even though you are the only user and administrator ;(

Done some more research and found that it is only in the Business and Ultimate versions of Vista - information that was sadly lacking from the PCA article!

I have found an alternative to secpol.msc at the following link. click here Scroll down to the bottom and you will find instructions for Vista PHE etc.

It only works with XP Pro - apparently.
