How can I deactivate User Account Control (UAC) on my Windows Vista computer?

 

An automatic function to prevent safety violations, the User Account Control (UAC), has been incorporated in Windows Vista. The UAC obliges users, who are member of a local administrator group, to work like normal users without administrator rights.

Although UAS increases safety on a Windows Vista system, it is sometimes required to deactivate this function. This article explains how you can deactivate UAC.

1.        Start MSCONFIG via the Run menu

2.        Click on the tab “Tools”. Look for “Disable UAC” and click on it:
 
 
3.        Click “Launch”
4.        A  command screen will appear:
 
 
5.         Close MSCONFIG and restart the computer to activate the new settings.

You can follow the same procedure to reactivate UAC via the option “Enable UAC”.
