    UAC control

    When I type secpol.msc in the Start Search Box my Vista computer says it can't find it??????

    Got one reply: "from what I understand that file doesn't exist in Vista."

    So I'm adding a quote from page 104 of Woody Leonhard's Windows Vista for Dummies.

    Quote "1. Click the Start button. In the Start Search box, type secpol.msc and press enter" End quote

    He than show the resulting display of "Local Security Policy" and what to do with it

    If the great Woody found it why can't we find it???

    Seems it doesn't exist in Home editions of Vista. Maybe that is your case?

    Look at the top of this browser page and see whose lounge this lounge used to be, I kind of did ask him.

    The local service policy in question only exists in the Pro and Ultimate versions (and possibly the Enterprise edition) of Vista. You most likely have the Home Edition.
