A small download which doesn’t require an install. HomePage.
Vista4Experts is for those who don’t want User Account Control dialogs, Security Center notifications, Automatic daily Windows Defender scanning’s, automatic update installations (causing reboots), etc. Many such fixes like these are included in Vista4Experts. All of these changes can be enabled or reversed later on.
