    So I was wondering why my AVG Free shell extension never worked when I right-clicked a file, and then I disabled UAC on my Vista. AVG worked like a charm. Now I was wondering: How do I enable UAC AND still allow AVG's shell extension scanner to work? Whenever UAC is enabled, the shell extension scanner does not load. If I right-clicked a file and clicked Scan With AVG, nothing would happen. Please help.
