Can anyone give me some advice, info, hack, articles or even code that can help me to solve this UAC issue in IE toolbar.

The problem is when I loaded an internet explorer with my ie toolbar(Add-in-Express) which perform read/write operation to a text file. But since with UAC enabled, the system blocked my code to write a text file. It works if the the plugin is installed as administrator, but again fails for any other user. I even tried with windows temperory folders but its not allowing write permission to the temperory also.

I already try signing/certificates but no luck. I can't turn off the UAC or protected mode for security reasons.

Trust you guys out there can help me to solve this problem.

Thanks in Advance.

Try writing the file to the the application data folder, which is located in the "Documents and Settings" folder. It should always be write enabled.
