That's a shame. It's the FIRST window a new user encounters when he started up Windows

I understand if the new UAC icon is ugly for you, but I like the new UAC icon!

Stuff like this is usually done in the end, not in betas.
But since its up for discussion, I agree.

Also, that add new users button looks like XP's

Its vista/7. XP's were a bit fatter and shorter. The yellow guy and a black guy as the users.

and not really, they tweaked vista's all thoughout the beta...

xombie wrote on January 3, 2009, 5:41pm

Yeah, but its still the same style, that was first introduced with XP.

I agree with litemininyuszika, the new UAC icon is much better!

.Chris wrote on January 14, 2009, 6:00am
