    go to "run"
    type msconfig.exe in the dialogue box,
    then go to "tools" tab,
    highlight "enable UAC"
    then click "launch"
    i think thats what youre after.
    good luck.

    ill be back soon,
    just watching some paint dry.

    Nope. Right-click the recycle bin.
    Select properties.
    On the page that opens, check "Display delete confirmation dialog." (It's at the bottom.)

    And no, you're not having a blonde moment. I'm not blonde, and back in the XP days, I forgot the same thing. Rev came to my rescue.

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
    love, piaqt
