Losing documents/settings when UAC is disabled
I lose all documents /settings when I turned off UAC. The document and setting do NOT come back again if I turn UAC on. This on a Windows 2003 domain laptop. The laptop is the only Vista Ultimatecomputer on the domain. I am loggedin my domain account which has adminstrative rights on the laptop as well as on the domain/domain computer. Are there any group policy which I need to set as part of adding a Vista Copmuter onto a Windows 2003 domain so that this behaviour is not repeated.. This problem is easily reproducible. This laptop was upgraded from Windows XP. Please help.

If you are using Roaming Profiles, the layout of folders is different in Vista so you will not automatically see old documents folders. You will need to use folder redirection to point the equivalent Vista folder at the location in the XP profile if you wish to maintain transparent roaming between XP/Vista.

I hope GPO is being pushed to Vista, but the question is what GP option is causing this behaviour. The default GP is applied on my Win2003 server domain. Could please find out which particular policy is causing this behaviour or is there a Vista specific group policy which I can apply. Any help will be appreciated. It is hard to believe this problem on a fairly typical configuration cannot be resolved.
