    No secpol.msc? (Home Premium SP1)

    I tried to follow Woody's tip (Windows Vista Desk Reference) for crippling the UAC, changing the entry for Local Security Policy.

    Sadly, my PC appears to have been supplied to me (by Acer, with Vista Home Premium pre-installed) with no copy of this file anywhere on it. What do I do now?

    Being that I'm still in the learning stages of Vista I'm not very comfortable with my "security" know-how yet. But, take a look at <post:=715,913>post 715,913</post:> and see if WinBubble will do what you want.

    With Windows Home Premium, you don't have access to the Local Security Policy. However, TweakUAC is a free utility which can accomplish your objective.

    Perfect, John! Just what I wanted.

    I've now switched the UAC to Quiet Mode.

    Yes, that's what I've done (quiet mode) as well. It doesn't turn UAC off, but it certainly stops the never-ending barrage of prompts.
