How To: Disable the annoying user account control popup prompts in Windows Vista

Disable the annoying user account control popup prompts in Windows Vista

Why is Windows always asking you for permission before you do anything? Since when does Windows control your computer, and not you? Those user account control popups can be so frustrating, especially when it comes to simple tasks.

Well, disable those prompts forever! Watch this video tip to see how easy it is. Simply navigate to your "Local Security Settings" by searching in the start menu for "secpol.msc" and select the "User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administration" option. It's probably set for "Prompt for credentials", but you want it to say "No prompt".

This works in Windows Vista, but the "secpol.msc" is not available in the Home Basic Edition.
