Hi All,
I also have issues with UAC. I do keep it on when my wife is using the computer just in case she accidently hits somehting wrong on a website and it tries to install something.
Anyway I found this standalone program that adjust UAC easily but also has a quiet mode. Not sure if you would like it or not or neeed it but here it is.

TweakUAC cane be downlaoded FREE from the following website.
Disable annoying Vista UAC popups with TweakUAC (FREE)

I have been using in Win7 no issues.

Can you use the built in snipping tool to make a screen shot of them and upload it to us?

snipping tool -- type snipping in search
attachment icon--- use this to attach the snip-- its the paperclip shaped icon in the reply form

The shields are there to notify you that elevated admin privledges are required for a specific operation. You'll notice that those shields are also normall overlaid on the icon for installer-type programs.

They remain as some kind of "visual cue" to highlight admin tasks, regardless of UAC settings.

i had an installation of windows which formatted on 20th of July , and i was using that version (7600.16385) , also its UAC was turned off and i havent even faced once with those shields. Wish i backed up an image of it.

this morning i formatted from different win7 dvd (because bought new 1tb hdd) , i guess dvds are different version maybe thats my problem , im trying to solve it for the past 6hour but couldnt find any solution except changing transperency of some dll.
