Post TIP: "Run as Administrator"
A real bugbear of Vista and Windows7 is the fact that our beloved game cannot be launched by simply double-clicking in the icon. Instead we need to right-click and select "run as administrator" - to me this is bloody annoying!

There is actually a way to improve this somewhat...

    -Using Windows Explorer find the sliders.exe file. Typically this will be in C:\Program Files\Jollygood Games\Turbo Sliders on 32-bit Windows or C:\Program Files (x86)\Jollygood Games\Turbo Sliders on 64-bit Windows.

    -Right-click on this file and select Properties...

    -Select the Compatibility tab

    -Tick the run this program as an Administrator box and OK

This should result in the STS icon finally working without right-click (although it will still prompt for permission). Hope this delivers a small amount of improvement to your STS experience!
