    Hi,

    I know nothing about Vista, I'm sitting here at friend's new computer with Vista Home Premium (Dutch), and I'm asked to help them to set it up :eek:

    First question: how can I change it to Classic View so it looks as best as XP?

    Second question: about UAC (ough)...
    What's the best? I cannot travel to their home ten times a day to answer their UAC questions.
    A dear friend pointed me to this site:
    "Don't Shut Off Vista UAC, There's A Better Way"
    http://www.informationweek.com:80/blog/main/archives/2007/06/dont_shut_off_v.html
    But I cannot see the supposed comment from Jim Johnson there about how to silence UAC.
    Maybe that fix is the one posted here:

    Any help would be more than welcome !
    Thanks lots in advance !

    1) Right click on desptop --> Personalize --> window colour and appearance
    2) Leave UAC on. It shouldnt bother them once they have installed all the software they need.

    Thanks.
    But I have already a problem after having installed CCleaner:
    Every time after the computer has started up, I got a question from UAC (in Dutch: Gebruikersaccountbeheer) whether it is allowed....
    So I suppose that I'm doing something wrong o_O
