Regarding VISTA confirmation pop-ups

  Graphicool1 15:25 08 May 2010

My wife has a VISTA Laptop. Everytime you open a programme or try to do anything a pop-up opens and asks for confirmation. Can anyone tell me if there is a way of turning off this function?

Thanks for your quick response, I followed your link, but that doesn't seem to be what I'm asking for. I don't want to disable the user account. What I want to do is put a stop to those annoying pop-ups that keep asking for confirmation, when you try to install, update, change or open anything.

I may have been too hasty with my protest of your link. Because on reflection I now believe this to be the answer. So I have to say both Sorry & Thank You. ¦¬]

No worries - just another of Vista's foibles!
