when using vista how do you stop it asking for permission for every change

    as above whenever i install it pops up with a message to authorise changes how can i turn this off


    Control Panel> User Account and Family settings:
    Open Control Panel.

    Under User Account and Family settings click on the "Add or remove user account".
    Click on one of the user accounts, for example you can use the Guest account.
    Under the user account click on the "Go to the main User Account page" link.
    Under "Make changes to your user account" click on the "Change security settings" link.
    In the "Turn on User Account Control (UAC) to make your computer more secure" click to unselect the "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer". Click on the Ok button.
    You will be prompted to reboot your computer. Do so when ready.
    In order to re-enable UAC just select the above checkbox and reboot.
    Hope that helps.

    Hi There,

    I think you are talking about UAC (User Access Control).

    Have a look at the following link:


    Gives you a few ways to disable UAC.


    Open window...pick up PC..through out of window....voila no more stupid prompts...really gets on my much so i went back to XP. LOL

    Easiest is on the start menu search bit type msconfig, and once it loads go to tools, select disable UAC then click launch then restart PC

    Takes less than a minute
