How To: Disable the user account control in Windows Vista/7

Disable the user account control in Windows Vista/7

ClosetFool shows you how to disable UAC in Windows 7 and Vista. UAC is there to protect your computer by asking if you authorized the program to run or make changes. However, it can become annoying constantly having to click "continue" in the dialog box when trying to run programs. To disable it, first click the start button. Type UAC into the search box. The search should return with one selection. Click on it, and select whichever setting you like. In this video, ClosetFool set it to "never." That's it! You've disabled UAC and don't have to deal with the pesky dialog box again.
