Even if UAC is off, you need to right-click > Run as Administrator to actually, well, run it as admin.

i will try that when i get home from work. actually i try it right now.
well i just tried it no joy . i am going to try my own from the order mod. ok this is what i found out the exe file from the order mod works no cd so i guess it has to do with how much editing has actually gone into the exe file.

Maybe you can check how you define the Heuristic bloodhound.
If that is loaded to max norton is hyperactive.

Ever since Peter Norton sold out, Norton has never been the same!

I suggest Comodo as a good Virus Scanner and Security System

http://comodo.com
its free and updates normally every other day.

Avast here. It slows down my system but so do the others.

Next step is to get rid of all and go to Linux.

Avira. One of the few that does NOT actually slow your system down...

Except if you have an ancient single-core CPU

I did try it some time ago FF, but it kept popping up windows to make me buy it, so I got tired of it and replaced it.

I can't remember if it slowed me down a lot or just a tad though.
