    The last three days upon booting up my pc I get a windows box with
    "Run a Legacy CPL Elevated"-allow or not allow. Since I have no idea what this message means I have chosen not to allow. I'm hoping you fabulous techs can enlighten me as to the meaning of this particular message.

    Upon clicking details this is what comes up:

    "C:\Windows\System32\RunLegacyCPLElevated.exe"
    Shell32.dll,Control_RunDL
    "Stacgui.cpl"
    Page=portmap

    Remember, I'm not a tech person so any explanation needs to be as non tech as possible. Thanks!:):):)

    That has to do with your SigmaTel sound drivers. There must be some kind of compatibility issue, though I don't quite know why it would have just surfaced now.

    I could not find any updated drivers, though perhaps somebody else will. For now I would think you can allow it.

    If you wait to take any action until somebody comes through with a 100% definite answer I'm not offended one bit :)

    Of course, after I asked the question, the "allow/not allow" messages magically stopped. And I never had any problem with my sound system.

    So thanks anyway for telling me what the message was all about.:):)
