Yahoo Messenger vs. UAC

Lately I've been needing to play with limiting user rights on some machines, UAC is turned on. We use Vista, and we also use Yahoo Messenger. When I use Yahoo Messenger as an Administrator, everything works fine.

"I'd start with giving the limited users read/write/modify rights to the Yahoo Messenger directory on the disk. If that doesn't fix it, track down Yahoo Messenger in the registry (probably under HKLM --> Software) and give the limited read/write/modify rights for any keys there.

If none of that works, consider switching to something like Pidgin. I know from personal experience that this will work in a limited environment."
