There should be an image here!User Account Control (UAC) was introduced in Windows Vista. However, it soon became an annoyance due to the number of notification. UAC in Windows 7 has been improved. It displays fewer warnings and you have some control over the frequency of the notifications. However, even with such improvements, some users may still choose to disable it.

You can disable User Account Control through the Control Panel. Alternatively, you can disable it through the Windows Registry, as described below:

  1. Open the Windows Registry.
  2. Navigate to HKLM Software Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Policies System.
  3. Change the value of the ConcentPromptBehaviorAdmin key to 00000000.
