Vista Tweak 1: Turning off User Account Control
User Account Control is probably the most annoying new ‘feature’ in Windows Vista and while it provides a good protection against unwanted programs it can become bothersome quickly when many applications have to be installed. I recommend to leave UAC turned on unless you have enough reason to turn it off. To turn off UAC follow these steps …
- Go to Start Menu/Control Panel and click the User Accounts icon.
- In the window that opens click Turn User Account Control on or off.
- Uncheck the box next to Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer.
- Click Ok. Eventually you have to reboot for the change to take effect.
