Disable UAC in Windows Vista

One of the biggest complaints new users to Microsoft Windows Vista have is in regards to the User Access Control, or UAC. The UAC’s intended function is to protect the operating system from unauthorized changes, but, in reality, it goes much farther than that. Even the slightest changes to the system settings require confirmation, and an experienced user can find him or herself easily frustrated. It is, however, quite simple to turn off.

Click on the “Start” button. It is the circular Microsoft Windows logo at the bottom left of the screen.
Click on “Control Panel.”
Type “UAC” in the search box on the top right of the window and hit "Enter" on the keyboard..
Click on ”Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off” in the search results window below, just below "User Accounts."
Uncheck “Use the User Access Control (UAC) to help protect your computer.”
Click “OK.”
Restart the computer when Windows Vista asks you to.
Congratulations! You have disabled the UAC and will no longer be asked to confirm everything.
