    When I connect my new Razr HD to my computer via USB (usually for recharging, but sometimes to access files) three things occur that never happened with my old Droid X. I'd love some way to "fix" all three of these:
    • Windows UAC (User Account Control) opens, telling me that there is a new driver from Motorola that must be installed. I click YES ... and it does install. But this happens EVERY time I connect the phone! How can I make this stop? (Turning off UAC isn't an option.)
    Connecting opens my browser to a page asking me to consider upgrading to Backup Assistant Plus. Man, I really want this to stop! (The page is www [dot] verizonwireless.com/wcms/overlays/bua-plus-overlay-video [dot] html
    My computer is set up so that double-clicking a JPG file will OPEN it in Photoshop. Not the JPG files on my phone, however. They're targeted to PREVIEW in Windows Photo Viewer. I'd like them to automatically open in Photoshop, like all other JPGs. This is a MINOR annoyance ... I can RIGHT-click these JPGs and choose OPEN from the context menu ... but I'd still like it to conform to how all other JPGs respond to a double-click. (The option of changing the default with "Open as..." isn't available.)
    Very grateful for any answers ... thanks very much!

    The second thing is easy to fix. After you connect your phone, there is a Motorola Device Manager icon in the system tray. Right-click that and set "When the device connects..." to "Do nothing".
