    I'm getting the problem where my ITE Smartguardian fan speed settings are not being applied in Vista with the Vista x86 version of that program. This program is right here. I'm not exactly sure how I should automate my fan settings so that when I turn on my computer, they adjust to the proper speed every time. I know Speedfan does not do this in the background and requires you to play around with it every time on reboot, or minimize the window, or whatever, but I'm looking for something more transparent.

    Thanks.

    Run it as an administrator.

    That option is grayed out even though I am on the administrator account (the one I installed Vista with). My account is even under the "Administrators" group, when I look at it under user accounts.

    Use Speedfan, and work around the gay.
