    It asks for confirmation because that is UAC doing its job. UAC won't let you change things like firewall settings without getting permission.



    Have you disabled UAC? If so, that would be why nothing happens.



    Regarding the control panel popup, are you able to change the date and time?

    Somethings very wrong with your machine if you can't change date and time. What happens when you try?



    Did you buy the machine with Vista preloaded, or did you install it yourself?



    What version of Vista is it?



    Are you running in a domain, or is it a stand-alone PC?
