Tips and Tricks – Making Vista UAC Less Annoying.

If you are a Windows Vista user, you
are probably used to the pop-up security
system that appears at nearly every actionable item from installing software
to changing the time on your system clock. Winability Software heard many
cries for help and developed a very small, efficient program called TweakUAC.

This FREE program, at only 85KB in size,
does not require installation of any kind and will provide you with a very
easy method (see image above) of turning the UAC on for all users, off
for all users or off for Administrators only.

If you are using Vista Pro or Ultra,
you can fine-tune your UAC settings by following the steps below:

    * Select "Start"
and type "secpol.msc" without the quotes
    * Navigate to "Local
Security Settings" on the left
    * Click on "Local
Policies" and then "Security Options"
    * Scroll to the bottom
for the User Account Control options
    * Select "Switch
UAC to the quite mode."
