Turn Off User Account Control Windows Vista

One complaint about Vista that is completely unwarranted is anything in regards to Windows Vista User Account Control (UAC). UAC is what causes those horrendous warnings to come up every time you try to make a change in the system. Why is the complaint unwarranted? Because it takes about 60 seconds to turn off. To turn off user account control, follow these steps:

– Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel
– Find User Accounts

Windows Vista Control Panel

– Open user accounts, and at the bottom, there is a link to “Turn User Account Control on or Off”

User Accounts Menu in Vista

– Follow the next step, turn off UAC, and restart your computer.
– Voila, Vista is one step closer to becoming usable.
