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 …

  1. Go to Start Menu/Control Panel and click the User Accounts icon.
  2. In the window that opens click Turn User Account Control on or off.
  3. Uncheck the box next to Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer.
  4. Click Ok. Eventually you have to reboot for the change to take effect.
