Actually, he told me to try that a few days ago, before I asked that question. He did not tell me to leave it on that setting which you seem to have implied and yes he is a real technical support person at Metabox Computers in Perth Australia, who assemble Clevo computers in this country.
Please stop being so nasty.

If you get a UAC prompt when you run a program, it's asking you Yes/No to allow the program to "Run as administrator".
Ok thanks Brink, I appreciate your help and explanations. It's a shame others have not shown the same patience and politeness.
