Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A couple of quick questions first.  Are you doing this via remote or at the desktop.  I ask because they is a way to turn off the UAC in the registry so that when you do a RDP to the system, you never have to worry about that showing up while you are working on it and the customer is not present to assist you.  If this is what you are looking for, I have the registry key to turn this off.
