UAC, or User Acount Control, is a great step forward for computer security. However, alot of people complain about it being a hassle, slowing them down and so forth. What UAC does, is basically treat all users, without regard for their access level, as standard users. When you attempt to perform an administrative action, you get a prompt, either asking you to supply user credentials for a user that has the needed access, or to say “yes, I want to do that”.
To disable it, you need to do the following:
- Open the Registry Editor
- Navigate through the registry editor to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
- Change the value of the ConcentPromptBehaviorAdmin key to 00000000
