Vista is incomplete??

Microsoft Vista, the latest operating system released by Microsoft, hit the market with a big bang. Vista was so beautiful and rich in graphics but I really found it to be a pain in the ass. This was because I had to endure many “are you sure” messages which were really really very troublesome.

I found the following article in which it explains that Vista is incomplete. I think it’s quite interesting. Check it out at http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/04/18/ballmer_vista_incomplete/

    you can deactivate those annoying prompting windows by following these steps..

    1. Click on Start button.

    2. In the Search box, type in command Prompt. Command Prompt will show up in the search result.

    3. Right click on Command Prompt icon and select Run as administrator.

    4. In the Command Prompt window, type in secpol.msc to bring up Local Security Setting management console.

    5. Expand Local Policies and click on Security Options. Scroll down to find User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode. Double click on the entry and change the setting to No prompt. Update: In Vista RC1, the wording has been changed to Elevate without prompting.

    6. The change made in Local Security Setting is not immediate. To force the change immediately, go back to the Command Prompt (cmd) window and type in gpupdate.

    Disable UAC and running vista is like driving a 4WD on 3 wheels 🙂
