User Account Control (UAC)
Turning User Account Control on or off
User Account Control (UAC) can help you prevent unauthorized changes to your computer. It works by prompting you for permission when a task requires administrative rights, such as installing software or changing settings that affect other users.
- Open User Accounts by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel , clicking User Accounts and Family Safety (or clicking User Accounts, if you are connected to a network domain), and then clicking User Accounts.
- Click Turn User Account Control on or off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
