I didn’t know if I should file this under other or HIPS. Which one is UAC, anyways? :S
I was browsing around and I found that Norton is working on a tool that replaces Vista UAC with a less annoying version. Basically, they change the prompts a bit, add a “Remember my choice button”, and add White listing so you don’t get prompted with known software.
The link is here: http://www.nortonlabs.com/inthelab/uac.php
Has anyone tried this out yet? It seems promising. They do have a point about the new security components of the Kernel on that page. It’s worth the read. However, this being Norton, they might start charging for this product once it is out of beta.
Hmmm. I think Comodo should work on tighter Vista integration. Basically, make a took like this and once that technology fully works, then integrate it into CIS, so all the D+/Firewall prompts would actually use the technology of this tool to work with the Vista kernel and it would be D+/UAC/Firewall alerts all in one pop-up kinda of thing. That would be cool! What do you guys think. How can Comodo use the new technology in the Vista kernel to improve upon things like this?
