How to Disable UAC

http://live.pirillo.com/ – UAC, User Account Control, can be pretty annoying for a power user, especially when you’re asked "deny or allow" every five minutes. On top of that it has a very annoying "donk" sound that could annoy the dead.

Thakfully, there’s a simple way to disable UAC:

  • Go to Control Panel
  • Open User Accounts
  • Remove the checkmark from the "turn user account control on/off" section
  • UAC is now disabled!

Remember: UAC is there for your own safety, as it can help protect you, so it is recommended that you keep it on. Do not disable UAC unless you know what you are doing.

Oh, and don’t run as administrator all the time, like Chris does. It can open you up to a plethora of nasty problems.
