IF YOU EVER TRY to run a program from a software publisher that you know is legit, yet Windows 7 gives you that annoying UAC (User Account Control) nag message, then try installing the program somewhere else instead of C:\Program Files.
I got that tip over here. BTW, here’s that annoying message:
“Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to your computer?
Duh, I said yes the last 20 times!! At least remember my selection for this particular program file. In this case, QuickBooks 2003 (file: qbw32.exe). Other than this, Windows 7 rocks!! Really. Yo Micro$oft, what took you so long? Congrats on a fabulous product.
OTOH, I’m still a 100% happy Linux Mint user. This Windows 7 was loaded on my pal’s sexy iMac 24″ system. I’ve simply had enough of Windows’ penchant for nasty “ware” ( trojans, worms, viruses, malware et al). I soon plan on taking PCBSD 8.0 for a spin. I can’t wait to get the full power of Unix — courtesy of the FreeBSD Project — on my desktop in a sleek KDE setup.
