Another EZ Macros Q&A and a feature

First of all, how about that Super Bowl? That game was exactly what I hoped for. Close to the end, Peyton cheering for his brother, and Eli getting his ring. Couldn't ask for more.

We've had an EZ Macros question coming up that I wanted to answer. Some of you who run Vista are getting an error like "Unable to set hook". Here is the solution:

Turn off the UAC (User Account Control). (See instructions below.) Microsoft views macro programs as a potiential risk because it takes control of your keyboard and mouse. I sincerely hope none of you would use EZ Macros for evil. Most companies disable the UAC when the get a installation of Vista. It simply generates too many help desk calls and it's just not worth the time it takes to support it. Here's how you do it.

A) Click Start...Control Panel
B) Click "Change your Windows Password"
C) Click "Turn User Account Control On or Off"
D) Clear the check box called "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer."
E) Reboot your computer.After you do this, EZ Macros will work perfectly.

This is a temporary "workaround". We will be fixing this in the next version of EZ Macros.

A new feature coming soon - File Encryption. You will be able to type your own password, and the software will use that password to enrypt your files on the server using Cryptography. If you have files that contain sensitive data such as social security numbers, bank account info, etc., you will want to enable file encryption. Look for that in your next Live Update.

Have a good week!
