I am having a very bad start to my day. i had tolerated all the permissions prompting in Vista NO MORE WILL I! Thunderbird has borked and the permissions issues are doing my head in. My account is admin already, I do not want any advice about running as admin.... I want to disable all permissions prompting. there may be ownership issues also in this case, and they will also do my head in. I have searched threads - there are plenty saying it is easily done - but I did not find the thread that says how - so this thread should be worthwhile and I do not feel bad asking. I could not even stomach thinking about the apple video thread that turned up on search. Please no dis remarks to Tbird either... JUST tell me how to turn it off - all of it - this is a personal PC and I insist to own it!
