Making Vista play nice – make it bend to your will

Recently, over the last couple of weeks, I have had a number of questions come at me about Production Premium’s compatibility with Vista and whether users should be using it. 

For the record, Production Premium CS3 is and has been Vista compatible since we shipped: Production Premium CS3 System Requirements

These questions along with work that I need to do this week led me to spend some time bringing my Vista machine up to snuff and prompted me to start making it act the way I want it to.  So, I wanted to pass on a website and quick tips that I’ve picked up…

The first (and only) website I’ve needed to visit thus far has been TweakVista

I’ve been aware of it for some time, but today prompted me to dig in and start turning on or off those things that annoy me about Vista.

For example, to remove the dialog box that says, ‘Hey, do you really want to do this?’ I turned to the website and looked at the article "Disable UAC" which I believe stands for Universal Access Control.

Next, I looked up how to disable Windows Center for start up.  It’s cool in the beginning, but geez, enough already right?

SO…if you’ve been wondering how to make Vista act and feel the way you want to, visit TweakVista and you’ll hopefully have a faster and better PC in your future!


I tried to install Adobe Reader 9 cause I need to communicate with my bank. It stops at 93% and tells me that it is installed, but I can’t click on the links that my bank sends to me? I can work on it though. I do have Vista. Is Vista the cause of my problem. I tried to drop all security and that did not work.
