Turning off Vista UAC (User Account Control) Back


If you are using Vista, you will probably be familiar with the popup UAC messages you keep getting, asking for your permission to do stuff like copying files to certain folders.

The 'solution'

It is possible to turn off this behaviour if you wish, although this does - according to Microsoft at least - reduce the security of your system.

Should you wish to turn off UAC (note that we are not actually recommending that you do this), there is an article here that tells you how to do it.
