OK, who still has it switched on? While I think it's good in principle, being unable to do things with my own folders finally annoyed me too much and I've turned it off.

Me.

I found that it's simpler to just click through. I read the warnings if I do not expect one or if I am installing/uninstalling or other non standard activity. (if you know what I mean)

Still for the moment but it really is becoming a drag.

It wouldn't be too bad if it had a memory but I still have to keep giving permission to access Money 2005!

Maybe a future Vista update will have a memory facility?

Yes, that's my single biggest beef about it, if only it could learn. I have noticed for some "events" it does give the option to not ask again.

Thank you Kate B that was one of the things that was really annoying me and now I know how to switch it off.

I'm sure they'll improve it in SP1.

It can be a nuisance I agree, but far safer to leave it on I think. I'm prepared to persevere anyway.

I haven't turned it off yet but I'm often tempted. It really should learn or you should be able to say "always allow..." .

turned on.

After about six weeks pulling whats left of my hair out I finally turned it OFF.

What a relief :-)

I noticed the Protected Mode of Internet Explorer was off even although the security said it was on. Thanks to anskyber for sorting this one for me, if you disable the UAC it stops the Protection Mode from working.
I can only presume that Protected Mode is part of UAC,
