    Authentic UAC?

    How can one discover whether a display like this http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/9066/gammachriswindowedgamma.png is genuinely from MS, rather than from malware phishing for the Admin password? Though MS says (below) this blue+yellow UAC shield verifies MS is the publisher, clearly the...

    Mystery registry change upon change of account type

    Can anyone point me to documentation of the effect wherein HKCU registry keys showing to regedt32 and apps change when the user's account type is changed? A user of account type Standard installed an app which created some config keys, and regedt32 showed these keys fine, under...

    How to get two start menu shortcuts to same exe with different with command-line switches?

    Not me! Sorry. Further though has led me to conclude that this might be by (arguably bad) design, since it somewhat alleviates the problem that Windows search results fail to clearly distinguish such shortcuts.

    Reverting "permanently get access to this folder"

    > There is no "Revert permanent access" option in Windows so in any case, it will have to be a manual action on your part. I wasn't hoping for anything better than manual. > So either do a system restore to before you did that OK, thanks.

    > Here's how to restrict a user to folders: Thanks, but I don't want to add a Deny. I want to revert the effect of a click on a Continue on a "Click Continue to permanently get access to this folder." dialog.

    Reverting "permanently get access to this folder"

    I simply want to revert the effect of a click on a Continue on a "Click Continue to permanently get access to this folder." dialog, so that this user no longer has direct access to that folder.

    Reverting "permanently get access to this folder"

    In one admin account I clicked another admin's folder in c:\Users, and accidentally Continued "Click Continue to permanently get access to this folder." Yes I know it said 'permanently'... :) but can I revert this change? I'd though I could go to the root folder of that user's profile and...

    Barring "permanently get access to this folder."

    > Admin status does, by nature, give access to everything. Thanks T, but note that there's a difference between free access and the warned access that I'm seeing here. I can't imagine why any designer thought protection needed initially might not be wanted subsequently. But I guess he did. Oh well!

    Barring "permanently get access to this folder."

    Is there a way to bar "permanently get access to this folder" short of removing admin status?

    How to get two start menu shortcuts to same exe with different with command-line switches?

    Thanks for those links. They certainly confirm there is some kind of bar against multiple shortcuts to the same exe on the task bar, so perhaps too on the Start menu. Nothing there illuminates why you don't have the problem. If you ever find out, please do say! > I also thought... maybe go to...

    > This is the way it is in Windows 7. OK, thanks. I'm glad that does not extend to Windows Explorer main windows :)

    Failure of "Double-click to open an item (single-click to select)" an Start menu All Programs

    Sorry to be unclear - I am referring to an All Programs folder, not a program. When I single-click a folder, it opens. It should select, as per Folder Options (*) Double-click to open an item (single-click to select).

    Where can I find the folder that holds the pinned Start menu shortcuts?

    Thanks. Odd that the folder shows most but not all of the menu entries e.g.: Link Removed due to 404 Error plus the menu doesn't show a shortcut I add to the folder: Link Removed due to 404 Error even after logon + logoff.
