The U A C as been hijacked, possibly by malware, I read an article in the latest issue of my PC Advisor that microsoft warns that malware turns off U A C. I think this has happened to my I B M laptop as I can no longer access the U A C, cannot enter system restore or anything, Can anyone please advise on the rectivication of this problem? Many thanks, tesfred1944
