[quote=siria] Lots of GREAT suggestions!! And certainly direly needed. Also an automatic check to see if user has write access, and some instructions popping up if he has not. One thought though, I'm someone who always needs explanations if something is forbidden for no obvious reason, to understand better what is happening and stay in control, to be sure I make the choice that really is best in that individual case. Don't want to be treated like a stupid kid that gets slapped on the fingers and doesnt even get an explanation. So if there is to be such a warning about "NOT recommended, own risk, advanced users only", that certainly makes sense, but *please* don't make it look like the computer might explode or get destroyed be attackers or just plain the OS might not work any more, or all data get lost, if one chooses that option! It should become clear that this is just as safe as the other option, even allows to have a portable version, with the only "danger" that crappy VISTA and WIN7 will refuse you any writing rights *GRRR* But works perfectly fine in XP and other systems, that after all are still perhaps half of all computers. Man, we could really use a specialist on vista/win7 here to post some how-to tricks - if they exist!! :-[ Really just about unusable those systems, unless one deactivates that whole UAC crap completely, and additionally always surfs as admins with full rights - and full dangers!! Really I'm surfing since over ten years as admin and without any user rights system (though with lots of caution and js mostly disabled, let alone other gimmicks), but that is on trusty old win98! Wouldn't dare for one hour get online this way with vista or 7 :-(( Can't one get any "damages for pain and suffering" from MS, and for just plain unusability (!!!) without passing through a 100h-windows-school??[/quote]
