vistaOne of the new features introduced by Windows Vista is the User Account Control (UAC) that protects your computer from malicious software, spyware, virus etc. But how does it work? Basically, it stops whatever you are doing to ask if you want to allow a specific event on your PC, giving you the opportunity to control the different applications running on it. Anyway, all this “stop and ask” can become annoying to no end. That’s why you may want to disable it. The easy way is to go Control Panel > User Accounts and Family Safety > User Accounts and then click Turn User Account Control on or off. If you want to disable it permanently you can choose to trick the Registry by following the follow steps:

Type Msconfig in the Command Prompt and follow this path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\

Give it a value of 0 (zero) and reboot. To know more about other useful hacks visit our hack section.

    I did this months ago from another article and it has made the Vista experience so much better. Do it, do it, do it. I know when I want to print, download, and all that other good stuff that I do with my PC. Now leave me alone, Vista.
